You must have your Win95/98 CD ready BTW.

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

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
