Hi method 13...

So you need a bootdisk, correct?

Download this Bootdisk, save it to your desktop. Double click on the downloaded file, and put a floppy disk in the floppy drive when prompted to do so. That will create the disk you need.

Post back when you have that finished.

I need my old computer but I can't get it to read the cd rom or do any thing for that matter.
I have a window open with bootdisk.com on it, what next?

Thanks,
like I said I am using dial up, it's downloading at 2.49kb/sec so it will take a min.

I'll try to give you enough instructions to get through this one step at a time...if you have a question about anything, just ask. There's no such thing as a stupid question here.

Got a floppy disk handy? Double click on the file and put the floppy in the drive when prompted to do so. That will create the disk for you.
