    OK Sometimes its hard for me to explain.

    Win 98 has a boot floppy, that has fdisk, format, defrag, ect.
    I took took one of those and burnt it to a CD , but it didnt make the CD bootable.

    Can someone tell me how to make a bootable CD like the win 98 bootable floppy.

    Thank you

    I have had the hardest time. But I got it. The iso file, I kept burning it to a cd and it kept coming out on the new cd as an iso file. Got past that, burnt the iso file to a new cd and the new cd when finished had nothing on it. After about the 30th time, with the cd showing nada, zlich @#%^%$# nothing on it I tryed booting to it. IT WORKED, typed in Dir. and all the files were there. So now I have 30 boot up disks. Also I can put one in any cd rom and look at it and it shows to be a blank cd. Go figure.

    Thanks for your help guys
