Actually the question is " For a reliable boot diskette for majority of systems, for the sake of helping "boneheads" that refuse to read .... directions. Personally I use 2k, latest packs, but I have "folks" that want me to fix ..... reformat their systems. Worked out "time" and a total reformat would suit me fine ..... sorry welcome to my real world!

A full system diagnostic, bootable or not on cd would help. Met computers when they slid into the graphics end. Forced t o read ... a frickin' lot! Oh .. besides! I'm from the wintry north of Ontario Canader! *GRIN*

Well for systems running Win95, 98, ME or even Win2000, and XP as long as HD is still setup with FAT32 then I use a standard Win98 bootdisk.

For systems running Win2000 or XP then you can use the OS CD to run recovery or whatever, but that allows you access to the computer.
