Do NOT alter! More often than not,
(1) you keep floppies, optical discs, and memory sticks in your
computer without intending to boot from them, and
(2) you'll want to use your BIOS's boot-once functionality (press a
specific keyboard button to bring up the media choser menu for that
boot; otherwise boot from the hard drives) whenever you do want to
boot from floppies, optical discs, or memory sticks.
