It does have a CD drive, I assume. If so, there's a way around this.
Win 95 and Win98 used to come with floppies that would load a CD driver
and then turn everything over to the disk in the CD drive. If it's a
Knoppix CD in the drive, it boots into Knoppix.
If you don't have one of those floppies, you can find and image of one on
the installation CD for Win95, Win98, Win2K and most Linux distributions
- even a lot of the more recent ones.
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
