are you familiar with grub4dos ?

if yes , then it can help you to add all ERD versions .

ERD iso now can be mapped as iso with firadisk image , there are N examples of it in here..

I found this thread, and it helped me greatly, I now have a flash drive with Grub, and I can load the Vista and the Win 7 based DARTs from it by choosing from the menu. However, I'm having trouble with the XP DART. I'm having trouble with "map --mem /images/FIRADISK.GZ (fd0)". So I think I understand that firadisk.gz is a floppy disk image, but what needs to be on that floppy disk image? How do I make it? I'm a Win guy, not a Linux guy.

thanks,

bosco

So I figured out my problem. I thought I had to make a firadisk.gz from your firadisk.img that was inside the zip attachment. But I think you just had a typo, or I don't understand *nix. I put your firadisk.img in my images folder, and changed the code to "map --mem /images/FIRADISK.IMG (fd0)". It worked. Now I have all three DARTs booting from one flash drive. This is much easier to tote in my pocket than 3 CDs :ranting2:

thanks,

bosco
