    help, i have got a laptop with a external floppy drive which does not work, i am trying to reformatt it, i have started my pc in dos mode and formatted the c drive , in the meantime i was playing about with my broken a drive with the windows 98 startup disk in and my pc went onto an error message telling me invalid system disc replace and strike any key, every time i reboot the same message appears. my floopy still does not work so i canont boot from the startup disc , can i get a startup disc on cd downloadable anywhere or can i copy the win98 startup floppy to cd , if so anything i need to know about.
