Re Installing Windows SE

Can get FDISC and FORMAT by "restarting in DOS" from Windows close down,using a startup floppy (I had to change the BIOS boot sequence even to get that far) but I am unable to find a DOS prompt when booting 'from cold' using the same floppy. All that does is give the normal options for starting Windows.
I am obviously missing something somewhere - help please, its been a long evening.

cold boot with the start-up floppy in

When the menu appears press "alt + f5" TOGETHER
this should then get you to a dos prompt, at this point most commands are not available, but choosing start without cdrom support will do the same + enable you to Format or Fdisk etc
