Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

B112874, Startup disk of Win98 can be created in the Win98 system.

Go to the Start-settings-control panel, Add/Remove Programs, Startup Disk Tab.
Click the [Create Disk] button. Follow the wizard with a new blank floppy put into your Floppy drive.

You made it after finished the wizard.

If you have queries, please let me know.    Pslh

OK, whenever I do that it says please insert The Windows 98 Second Edition Cd and press OK to continue. I don't have the CD.

B112874, Another way:-
Go to the C:\windows\Command\EBD\

Copy all the files under the folder EBD to your floppy.

Before copying, format your floppy to be a system disk by going to My computer, select the floppy and File-format.

After formatting and copying. Restart the computer with this startup disk to see if it works or not.

Let me know.      Pslh

no need to go to the ebd directory... in the C:\windows\Command directory, type BOOTDISK A:

this will do all the fork for you.... like formatting, copying the system files, and loading all the drivers in the disk....
