I understand the link about the link and instructions about the boot.ini, but here is what will happen...
If the user boots RC, they will be in the c:\windows folder (hopefully). So if they do this:
ren C:\Boot.ini Boot.ini.bak
That will "move" the c:\boot.ini file into c:\windows folder and call it boot.ini.bak.
Then when they reboot without the CD, XP will complain but still boot. So far so good.
But then, these instruction will not
work if you follow them exactly:
...rename C:\Boot.ini.bak to C:\Boot.ini and run Msconfig again to remove the /safeboot flag.
That will not work because there is no c:\boot.ini.bak file - it is in c:\windows.
You can't do this from RC either:
ren c:\boot.ini c:\boot.ini.bak
Some people will "get it" and be fine, but the other day somebody did not get it.
Of course you understand what to do, but maybe the steps should be after booting into RC:
ren boot.ini boot.ini.bak
Of course, there are several ways to do it, but I figure enhancing the instructions will make it a little more foolproof.
Let me know if I am
