How to create a startup (boot) disk

Is there a way to make a bootable disk for Win2K?; I'm NOT asking about the set of four floppies to install Windows 2000, neither am I talking about the Emergency Repair Disk; what I'd like to have is, a floppy (like the startup disk in Windows 95/98) to boot my machine and go the DOS prompt.
TIA for any help.
