There is probably a floppy in your computers drive that does not contain any boot information When you boot up your computer it checks the floppy drive for any "boot files" that could tell it to do something different upon booting up If you have a floppy that does not contain any boot info in it in your floppy drive when booting it will ask you to remove the floppy and then you may continue.
