I tried searching for "boot disk" and didnt find the answers to my questions.

1) I do not have a floppy drive and have no plan in buying one so could I burn the boot disk to CD-R and boot off that to run my DOS games more effeciently?

2) I have a computer with the following specs. Can this run Civilization I?

Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz
ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe
2 X 512-MB Kingston DDR400/PC3200
160GB Seagate 7200RPM SATA 8MB Cache
Samsung Combo drive
USB Keyboard & Mouse
NVidia 6800 GT 256MB
Windows XP Pro SP2

For that me friend you will need dosbox or vdmsound but I prefer dosbox because I do not think our bootdisk works on cd.

EDIT: O by the way, welcome to the fourms.

Dosbox will work like a charm on these specs.
