Can anyone tell me what files are located in the Boot Image of a Retail or OEM Bootable Windows 98 CD-ROM.

I would like to ascertain these files to build a bootable CD of my own.

The way to obtain these files would be to boot the Windows 98 CD and drop to dos before setup starts.

Then Create a temporary directory on your C: Drive. Call it "Boot".  Then from the A: prompt type copy *.* C:\Boot and press enter.

Then remove the CD and restart your computer.

Can anyone provide me with this information? Directory listing, and contents of autoexec.bat, config.sys?
