Yeah, that didn't work as expected ... The system was setup to always boot
from the HD first ... in order to change that I had to go in the BIOS and
flip the order around so it would boot from the CD. So, I ended up
stealing a coworker's keyboard when they went to lunch. Returned it before
they came back ... no idea their keyboard took a short "trip" ...
Once that got fixed, since I already made a disk following the link that
Chris Stone sent, I went ahead and tried it et voila, works. So thanks to
everyone for helping here.
