You must have your Win95/98 CD ready BTW.

rberger,
Do you have Windows presently installed?
If not, the procedure will be somewhat different......

I want to know how to create the Setup Boot floppy, not a startup disk. For example, on Windows NT, the Setup Boot floppies are created by running Setup from the Windows NT Workstation CD with the /ox switch.

%cdrom%\i386\winnt32 /ox

This creates the 3 NT Setup floppies. Is there something similar for Windows 95/98?

Thanks

Unlike NT, there's no setup floppies that guide you step by step to install Win95/98.  The Startup disk created using this method is pretty much the same as the setup disk that comes with Win95/98 OEM version.  Win95 doesn't provide CDRom driver while Win98 does have the driver so you should also have a CDRom driver installation disk if you're to setup Win95.
