    Thanks RSM123

    Well buying a new app is a kind of solution - but the question still stands- how to get Drive image 2002 on one floppy ?

    Its not essential - just I'd like to make a boot cd with it & I only know how to do that from a single floppy.

    Anyone ?

    Hi,

    I wasn't suggesting you buy this. I've never used it so cannot know how good it is. I merely came across it doing a Google search for what you were asking :D

    If you type 'Drive Image on single floppy' in :

    http://www.google.com

    There are a number of references to a DOS version. But no links - that I could see anyway.

    If you are booting from a CD you only need the boot code on the floppy. You can install the rest of the CD as a CD and access it as normal. If there is no hard drive or you don't want to write to the hard drive, set up a Virtual Disk in memory.
    I do this to create an emergency recovery CD with all sorts of utilities on it and running WFWG 3.11

    Hi
    If you have Nero, it will create a bootable cd from your bootable floppy.
    I would think other cd burning sofware have simlar options.
