    Dave, do those d/l come with cd rom drivers included? If so, do they give you generic drivers so my cd rom drive is useable?

    OEM. Just double click on the downloaded file with a clean floppy present.

    Yes, you need a program like rawrite to write it to a floppy. Then you're done. Just make sure ur BIOS is set to boot from floppy

    You don't need rawrite. It is a self contained executable file that creates the Boot Floppy for you.

    I tried using this boot cd but it didn't work. The system I first had on this system was win95. I used delpart to delete the partitions on this system cause it wasn't working correctly. I then tried using the bootdisk from bootdisk.com but when I did, it didn't provide the drivers for my computer. Any ideas as to why? Do I need to do anything special? I appreciate any help.
