    ok I have this situation, I had win98 second edition on my computer but for some reason it was corrupt or something so I slicked my disk clean and partitioned and formatted my computer all over. I then went to bootdisk and made copies of the windows 2000 disk set and tried to install it when I put the floppy in it says non-system disk or disk error, replace and strike any key to continue. what am I doing wrong? please help I'm desperate!

    I'm trying to install win2000 because the 98 disc I have, I lost the product key for. that's why I downloaded the win2000 disc off of bootdisk.com
