You can boot from the CD if you want or go to click here and download one or you can create one from control panel, system.

If you and all your friends are using XP, why do you need a win98 boot disc?
If you go into your BIOS you can set the boot order. With XP all you need to do is boot first from your CD drive, making sure you XP disc is in the drive. If you have win98, you can use it to create a boot floppy disc.

To make a Boot disk in Win98 all you need is to select 'Control Panel'


Click on 'Add/Remove Programs'


Click on 'Startup Disk'

Put a floppy in the floppy drive and Click on 'Create Disk'


load the Win98 Cd when asked and click OK


This will produce a Boot floppy with CD Support etc.
