Alternately you may be able to use smart boot manager to force it to
boot off of CD.

&gt; I've got an old P-200 machine that I feel I can still get some good use

&gt; dead and it keeps reverting back to the original settings once saved
&gt; and booting from the hard drive.
&gt; 
&gt; I don't know how easy it would be to replace the CMOS battery.  What
&gt; are my options here?  Can I get this to work with a dead CMOS battery?
&gt; 
&gt; Thanks.
