    Do you have access to a W98 PC? If so, do this to create a boot diskette

    Start>Settings>ControlPanel>Add/RemovePrograms>StartUpDisk. Insert a formatted floppy diskette and click on CreateDisk.

    If you don't have access to a W98 PC, go <a href=http://www.user-friendly.net/download/download.htm> here</a>, click on the link to download Boot98.exe and download it to the Hardrive, not a floppy. Once it's downloaded, insert a floppy diskette and double left click on the Boot98.exe file you saved earlier to create a W98 boot diskette. It will lead you through the creation.

    I like easy questions.

    Select Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Applications, Startup Disk tab, and following the instructions.

    Here is a paragraph from the MS KB article on Startup disk creation Win98
    To create a Windows 98 Startup disk:
    Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.

    Click the Startup Disk tab, and then click Create Disk.

    Label a disk "Windows 98 Startup Disk," insert the disk in your disk drive when you are prompted, and then click OK.

    Click OK to quit Add/Remove Programs.

    Remove the Startup disk, and then store the disk in a safe place.
