I hate to just repeat what's already been said a g'zillion times before, but with a program like Nero you can create a bootable CD.
When it asks you for the boot files, direct it to your Ghost boot floppy.
It will copy everything from the floppy to the boot sector on the CD.
That's it.  Quick, simple and cheap!

Don't try to read that CD in windows though......
Windows can't read the boot sector and the CD will appear to be blank.  Many a user has been fooled by that little detail.
To see what's on the CD, you must boot up your system with the CD and then do a "DIR" at the dos prompt.

During the same process, you can add other files to the DATA area of the CD.  Anything in the data area can be easily read from Windows.

I created a combination Ghost boot CD and Utilities CD using that technique.

I got a CD having everything in the boot sector, by using an intermediate step by putting everything on a bootable Flash Drive and then burning it to a CD, using Nero.

Cheers Mate!
