Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Easy questions get easy answers! Just right click the floppy drive and choose format. Then there is a check box to make the floppy bootable. it says under format options:

Make Floppy Disk Ms-Dos Bootable.

As for making a CD bootable you need to copy system files to that disk. Some cd burning programs have that as an advanced option. But you could use the old <a href=”http://www.askTheAdmin.com”>AskTheAdmin.com</a> workaround and copy the bootable floppy files to the cd (Make sure you show all system and hidden files!)

    I am not sure what good VO will get out of making a bootable floppy disk to work on his Windows 2003 server since it will be in a NTFS format; which means his hard drive(s) will be unaccessable. I would suggest that he take a look at Bart's CD (found http://nu2.nu/) or the Ultimate Boot CD 4 Widows (http://www.ubcd4win.com/). So, easy question this was not. dmw
