F1 - the first partition on that discm F2 - the 2nd. If you had all 4
DOS partition on there then you would see F3 and f4 as well.

yes - you just press it :-) it will then store it away for next time.

its a bit odd to be booting off a 2nd drive though - I had a set of machines
setup like this once, but that was due to the hot swapp drives being, umm,
swapped, by accident one day.
