I have windows XP machine and trying to use Grub2dos with plpbt.bin to use Plop USB boot option since I don't have CD drive / Floppy and my BIOS does not support USB booting option.

Since I was having trouble with generating plpbtldr file (its always saying file is fragmented) I have decided to use Grub2dos. Here are the steps I followed,

Step 1. I used Grub win GUI (grub4dos-0.4.4) to create GRUB file and copied menu.lst to C:\. Now menu.lst, grubldr etc files located in C:\

Step 2: Edited menu.lst file and added below lines to menu.lst

title Plop
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/plpbt.bin

-> When I choose 'Plop' from Grub menu when my machine is booting I get
Error: File not found

Step 3: I re-edited menu.lst and modified
kernel (hd0,0)/plpbt.bin  => kernel plpbt.bin

-> Now I am getting "Grub2dos needs absolute path (Error 1)"

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?
