    Hi,

    Earlier, in order to format and partition my HDD, I had been using the Startup-floppy of Win-98-SE . CD is always better than the horribly unreliable floppy. When I attempted to copy the contents of the Win-98-SE-startup-floppy onto a CD (by burning the CD), 3 files (namely, command.com , config.sys and autoexec.bat) weren't copied onto the CD, even though all the other files and folders (such as fdisk.exe , etc) were indeed copied. As such, this burnt CD is entirely a waste, it never functions as a startup CD.

    My OS being Win-XP-Professional, my intention being my frequent necessity to format and partition my HDD (into 3-5 unequal partitions including one in NTFS), kindly provide the appropriate information to me. I want a bootable and startup CD.

    Thanks,
    Mr. Deepak-R
