I don't understand your question.

Did you make a bootdisk by downloading a self-extracting program to creat e a disk?

Does your BIOS/CMOS setup have an option to boot from a floppy diskette?

Before you copy the files from a pre-made 'bootdisk' onto your floppy, first make sure to format it with the proper system files.

Example:

Format A: /s

This will copy the files needed to boot with.  If you need commands such as FORMAT or FDISK, you will need to copy them from your harddrive (in 95 & 98 they are in C:\Windows\Command) to the floppy or go get a pre compiled collection from the aforementioned address www.bootdisk.com.
