    use NERO to create a boot disk
    (in case of an emergency you can always use your original OS CD as a boot disk - that is, if you have an original OS)

    i save the bootable part of the win98 cd by using magic iso or ultra iso ( one of them ) . then i use that as bootable iso in nero for most data cd's i write . incase i dont have win98 sometime in the future , i just pop in one of the data cd's and troubleshoot .

    this works great for making bootable cd's of Samsung and Maxtor disk managers , so that u can use a cd to make partitions and make backups . gr8 way to make floppies obsolete

    Well dude
    there are many ways to make those....
    one of them is by using softwares like nero which create the boot disk by copying files from floppy.. but u dont hav one...so u try the other way
    get a bootable disk of OSs and then make a image of it... if u cant find a bootable disk ... use floppy drive of someone else to make a boot disk on floppy and then use nero or other software to make a bootable CD...
    SO... ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYYY :evil: :twisted:
