    Hello

    I am trying to install os2 warp 4 on my Compaq Presario 1220 Laptop. I
    insert the disk, turn it off, then on, and it still loads Windows. I
    checked the BIOS, and it's set to boot from the CD-Rom, then Floppy,
    and last the Hard Drive. All of your support on the matter is greatly
    appreciated!

    You may have to create the diskettes. On the CD there is a BAT file.
    Execute the BAT file under DOS and maybe under a windows dos box.
    It will create three or four diskettes. You then boot with diskette 0
    and follow instructions from there.

    Note: The program that creates the diskettes is very touchy (flakey) be
    sure you use new diskettes and format them on the machine you intend to
    use them on.
