    Hi

    How do you create a Emergency Repair Disk and the start up boot disks (which should take 4 floppies)?

    Are they the same? Anyway, thanks in advanced

    Insert the Windows 2000 CD, if it does not start automatically run Setup. It will prompt you with an option to create them. The Startup diskette are different from the ERD, it is not bootable.
