1 Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel

In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs

Click Create Disk to create the Startup diskette

In some circumstances, you may be prompted to insert the Windows Me CD-ROM when you click Create Disk

When you are prompted, insert a formatted diskette into the floppy disc drive and then click OK to confirm that the contents of the diskette will be overwritten

When the Startup disk creation procedure is finished, remove the diskette from the floppy disc drive.
