Is it possible to create a bootable cd-rom disc for OS/2? Some computers allow booting from the cd-rom disc.
OS/2 Warp-ed to the very end.

Hmm.. yes it is possible and there is an application available for this and if I don't recall wrong this would als be possible to fix with RSJ-Writer. Let me return on this topic - I remember that I had the need for my self as well - or if someone else has a faster answer available.

Following news posting exist:

CD Boot/2 is a utility to enhance bootable OS/2 CD- ROMs so that when the CD-ROM is inserted into the drive, a menu is displayed immediately after BIOS has started booting from it. From that menu, the user has to press the spacebar to continue booting from the removeable media, or if the customizeable period expires, the boot process continues booting from the first harddisk instead. That avoids having to shuffle the 2 CD-ROMs as required by IBM's approach.
