I've looked thru the documentation and this forum, so forgive me if this has been answered already . I could not find it so far.

I want to be able to modify the boot cd so that it forces it to manual mode.

In particular I'm having a problem with a few of the newer pc's with usb keyboards - I have downloaded the latest bootcd iso and that didn't make a difference. I have tried different keyboards, and different usb ports - no difference.

They keyboard is unresponsive at the main menu - so it defaults to automatic. Once it gets past that - it stops due to "no work to do" and prompts you to hit any key to reboot - of course the keyboard works there.
