If you are now using win95
Click on the start menu.
select settings and then control panel
next..double click in the add/remove programs icon
the third tab over is the Start up Disk Tab
Click on it and create a startup disk...

that should do the trick...
If you are not using win 95 tell us what you are using...(i.e. DOS win 31, win 311, etc...)
Give us alittle more info on your system like does it boot to win 95..information like that..

Thanks,
John C. Cook

Try this: dblclick on MyComputer -> right-click on floppy icon,
select Format. Don't use Quick format, format your floppy, check
checkbox 'copy system files". Maybe you have problems with floppy...
