Autoexec problem

  Mac608 16:19 13 Oct 06

I am running Windows 98SE.

When the PC was started someone in the family had left a CD in, now it won't start without me going in on the DOS prompt and typing:

Cd\windows and then

1. How do I backup the autoexec before I start tinkering
2. To tinker, is it as easy as just typing in "sysedit" in the "Run" box - I am presuming that sysedit will actually display the autoexec file

Or am i barking up the wrong tree?

VoG - thanks for the link, guess I must improve my search technique on Billy's site.
