Need to transfer system to hard drive from floppy

This morning when I started Windows 95 (actually win98) I got a dos message "Invalid system disk".

I put in my startup "floppy" in my "A" drive and it started dos, and, thankfully I was able to switch over to Drive "C".  And I see my directories are there.  I tried just typing WIN but that didn't start windows.

Now I want to retransfer just the system from my floppy to my hard drive.

How do I do that?

From the startup floppy run sys c:
If the above gives you an error, you can run this from the hard drive.  Locate on the drive (C:\Windows\command, or other) and run "sys a: c:".  If that still does not help, Check to see that your CMOS recignizes the drive properly.  If not, correct it, and do the above again.
