To start my computer I need a start-up disk. What can I do to get
rid of the start-up disk and start my computer normal without any
disk. One of the reasons I want to fix this is because I want to install windows 95 on my pc.Can you please tell me step by step on how
to fix this? I would be very thankfull if you did.

If floppy disk then you should just be able to boot off Disk 1 and start the install without performing the steps at the bottom of this answer.
If you have CD then you can create a bootable floppy with your CD-ROM drivers on it, boot from it, and start the Win95 install, again without performing the steps below

------
To make C: bootable

1) You must have a hard drive in your computer.
2) Check your startup disk and hard drive for a program called 'sys'. it should be on the orginal DOS install Disk 1 if no where else.
3) run the following command:
sys c:

Remove startup floppy disk
Reboot computer
