More information
To create a Startup disk:
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  3. In the Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box, click the Startup Disk tab.
  4. Click Create Disk to create the Startup disk.

    NOTE: In some circumstances, you may be prompted to insert the Windows Me CD-ROM when you click Create Disk. This can occur if the installation files that are required to create the Startup disk are not on the hard disk.
  5. When you are prompted, insert a formatted floppy disk into the floppy disk drive, and then click OK to confirm that the contents of the floppy disk will be overwritten.
  6. When the Startup disk creation procedure is finished, remove the floppy disk from the floppy disk drive.
Unlike Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition, the Startup disk creation program (Fat32ebd.exe) is not included on the retail Windows Me CD-ROM.
