Hello, Im a computer programming class at my high school and me and a few friends are trying to get linux running on the school computers. We know we cant install anything so we decide to boot straight off a cd and disable everthing that tries to write to a directory by creating a temporary directory for it. I figured we could try knoppix or something like that. THe problem is all these cds have the bootloader on the cd. I am unable to change the boot order since bios has an admin password. The order right now is floppy, hard drive, cd. Is there anyway for me to tell grub or lilo which would be on a floppy, to boot a kernel which is on a cd rom? Ive googled the heck out of this. Thanks Lambo

Break into the computer and disconnect the hard drive. Problem solved.
