    Although Taurarian is correct, that is not what you asked.
    In order to make a boot diskette (MS-DOS) you can do this:

    To create an MS-DOS startup disk

    The MS-DOS startup disk you create will allow you to boot into MS-DOS.

    1. Insert a floppy disk into your computer's floppy drive.
    2. Open My Computer, and then click the floppy disk drive to select it.
    3. On the File menu, point to the name of the floppy drive, and then click
    Format.
    4. Under Format options, click Create an MS-DOS startup disk.
    5. Click Start.

    Important

    - Creating an MS-DOS startup disk erases all information on the floppy
    disk.

    Notes

    - To open My Computer, double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop.
    - The MS-DOS startup disk only allows the system to boot into an MS-DOS
    prompt. The disk contains no additional tools.

    You can create a bootable CD with many commercially available programs -
    like Nero and Roxio. They explain this quite well in their doentation.

    You can also download boot diskettes from places like [url]www.bootdisk.com[/url].

    Hope that helps.

    You'll need a third-party CD-burning software like NERO
    burning rom ([url]www.ahead.de[/url]) to be able to burn a bootable
    CD from an image of a floppy disc.
    G'luck.

    Default Boot disc

    I have problems too finding this, how to make a boot cd or dvd disc.

    i know nero, 3rd party software, xp/vista win 7 all can boot.
    but i want to make a boot cd or dvd from a blank disc, what files do i copy over and what small things do i do to make it bootable, i got to bootdisk.com and they want money.

    i am trying to find a no download, no 3rd party solution. cmd prompt, ok. services sure. pull a guid from registry to find a file for copying to make disc bootable no problem. why this is so hard to find i dont know.
    a boot cd, mouse keyboard support, cd rom dvd support, usb support, and finally all i want is a cmd prompt, i could even do without mouse support. it just seems this process should be easy, with the creating a boot sector being the hardest but well under 100 lines in notepad even if i had to make that one file manually. i just was wondering how to create a simple boot disk, if anyone knows, lay on me the how to, plz, baby.
