Oh well, if you were talking about older computers, you are indeed correct. however, that's a VERy irrelevant debate, given that you have a floppy drive on a laptop that is, oh, 3 weeks old? If that can't boot from a CD...
Obviously the BIOS controls boot... Why was that in question?
You have a USB floppy drive... i may be completely off-base here, but wouldn't that mean you would need the motherboard usb drivers installed, thereby entirely invalidating the point of having a floppy drive for booting anywyas...?
