How can I make a bootable cd. My computer will not boot from a floppy.
I don't know if the floppy drive is bad or what is wrong, but I need to get to the fdisk function and can't.

The HD is running windows 2k.

Thanks and Have a Great Day,

Can you see anything on any floppy? Try copying and pasting something into an empty floppy. If that works, you probably have a bad start up disk.
If you need one look at this thread


Get what you need from either "Elvandil" or "Bob Cerelli"

I use NERO too. Great Burning program, good for copying Windows CDs, which may be a little damaged, to new media with data verification, copying to the hard-drive first and not directly from CD to CD. Great for burning new OS CDs with autostreamed service packs from an .ISO , (CD-ROM ISO).

What I really like is that it can burn at full speed to x42 CDRs or faster. :)

Me too, I even use a floppy to redirect the boot to bootable CDRs & Mini CDs which are bootable themselves, as it saves messing around in the BIOS.
