booting from FDD - SCO

Have a system running 5.0.6 enterprise, and not able to boot. Made a boot floppy and filesys floppy from another like system. How do I get the sys to boot with the FDD in? Made the FDD the first boot device in bios, and the system still gives me the BOOT: prompt as it boots from the HD. Any help greatly appreciated. I think the sys has a full HD......

    Are you *sure* it's booting from the HD? The boot floppy will also
    give you the "Boot:" prompt.

    If it is booting from the HD, perhaps the floppy/drive is bad.
