How can it be possible to use a floppy when your booted with a boot cd like the ultimate bootcd.
what we want to do is booting from the ultimateboot cd and customizing the cd so we can open a tool wich we added ourselfs to the boot cd and use the floppy drive with tool.

If we boot from a bootable cd it mostly emulates a floppy drive, so typing "A:" isn't working because the system thinks we are already on the A: drive but in fact its the cd-rom drive.

Is there a possibility to boot from the cd and switch to another drive like te floppy, i noticed that from the menu i could boot up from the hardrive 1 or 2
how can i appoint a driveletter to the floppy drive?

Not sure whether this will work. But you can try the following:

- [F10] to drop to console
- Type bcdw boot /images/freedos.img
- At the command prompt, type "bcdw DisableEmulatedFloppy".
- Stick a floppy into your real floppy drive and see you "dir a:" gives
you the desired result.

When UBCD "takes over" A, B becomes the physical drive.
