On older systems that had floppy drives, a bootable floppy with command.com and a large number of utilities, such as FDISK, could be created. Can anyone tell me how to make the same thing using a CD when no floppy drive is available? Thanks.

For NTFS drives you can use this

If you want something very similar to a Win98 bootup disk that lets you format/create partitions/ whatever... try Partition Logic
http://www.download....cdlPid=10503523

Or Super FDISK
http://www.download....cdlPid=10880620

Those last 2 are really good and I use both. I think the super FDISK one has options for creating over 90 different partitions (linux, mac, windows, etc...).


Then there are these...

Make your pick. They can all do just about the same thing though. They are all free. Use a program like Magic ISO, and tell it to "Burn Image, or Burn ISO to cd".




Take note. If you use a computer that has a DVD drive, sometimes they will not boot to cd's for whatever reason, so instead burn the iso to DVD (only need to do this if you have a problem booting to it).
