Hello, I am trying to install PloP boot manager, For the usb function.
I have no idea how to change the filename in the cmd. Kind of an idiot.

so here are the steps listed. I'm really lost.

Download the file plpgenbtldr-0.7.zip and extract it.

Create a directory like c:\plop. You can use any directory you want.

Copy plpinstc.com and plpgenbtldr.exe to your c:\plop directory.

Rename plpinstc.com to plpbt.bin.

As administrator/with administrator rights open a command shell and change to c:\plop

Then start plpgenbtldr
This program searches for the file plpbt.bin In the current directory.
plpgenbtldr generates the file plpbtldr.bin.

Adding to the boot menu. Windows 2K and XP is different to Windows VISTA

Windows 2K, XP

add the line below to your c:\boot.ini

c:\plop\plpbtldr.bin="Install PLoP Boot Manager"
Windows VISTA

open notepad as administrator and create a file c:\boot.ini
add those lines

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
c:\plop\plpbtldr.bin="Install PLoP Boot Manager"

i'm not sure in the step to change to c:\ plop, where to find the file i'm changing or how to change it.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
