Systems all built, fired up second time (motherboard power switch, whoda thought. I set the boot device to CD. Now what do I do? Is it as simple as putting in the OS disc and turning on the computer?

Thanks for all the info in this forum for me ending up (so far) with an operating build. It also just answered my question in a previous thread about an OS not loading.

well, not sure if you answered your own question, but put in the disk with the OS either xp or vista for windows or some linux distro. you will be asked if you want to boot from cd/dvd and click any button. after everything loads, just follow the directions and everything should be fine

Thanks for your concern. I loaded it yesterday. Now, if I could only get the internet working and get COD5 to work, I'd be super fine.
