Did you mean the Win 98 startup disc or the Win 98 installer disc?

A.) Win 98 startup disc - a floppy disk specially formatted by an Operating System to be used as a boot up medium when your OS experiences problem or you don't have a starting OS at all.

To create a startup disk
  • Go to Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box at the Startup Disk tab.
  • Click Create Disk.
  • Follow the instructions on your screen.
    Notes:
  • You can also open the Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box at the Startup Disk tab by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Add/Remove Programs, and then clicking the Startup Disk tab.
  • To make a startup disk, you will need one floppy disk with at least 1.2 MB capacity.
  • When you insert the startup disk in your computer before restarting, the computer starts from that disk, not from your hard drive.
B.) Win 98 installer disc - a CD used to install a Windows 98 operating system on your PC.

I meant the former. I followed your instructions and now have
a backup disk; hope I never have to use it. Thank you. ...wdc
