But good questions!

Under the BIOS (Usually F2) you can setup the boot order. Change the CD
to be before the HD. Do not put the floppy before the CD or HD, the
floppy is not bootable. This is different for every bios, so I can't tell
you how to make the changes.

YES! This does not touch the windows install, so you can just use the
floppy and CD to have a fully working linrad setup. Reboot, remove the
CD, and you will boot back into windows.

No this CD has all of the files you need to run linrad.
