Frequently Asked Questions

Please read this page carefully before mailing me for support. Also, please check out the usage instructions. Thanks. First, a disclaimer: I don't use Windows much at all. Autoclave works by booting your computer with a small Linux operating system. I developed it using Linux, and I always use Linux when creating the bootable floppy. Rawrite was written by someone else, and I don't know much about it. If your problem involves not being able to create the bootable floppy, I might or might not be able to help.

That aside:
