    I have a windows 2000 professional operating system and I need to boot from a floppy. I'm missing ntdetect.com and my original windows 2000 cd does not work. What files do I need to make my floppy disk? Thanks

    I also downloaded the file "makeboot.exe" from the website mentioned by JackDogg but it won't work, so can I just unpack the four other files to the boot disks? Btw the computer I'm working on has windows xp. Thanks
