Can someone tell me how to create/make a bootable floppy diskette for my WinXP home edition OS? I have looked at the installation disc (CD) and see no instructions. (Trying to resolve a "DMI pool data" problem and it mentioned using a bootable floppy diskette to start my computer and get to the a:\ sys c: command.)

Thanks for your help

acklan,
Thanks for the site. I believe I got what I was looking for.

River Rat,
Thanks for your input but I only needed a "boot" disk. not the complete installation set.
