Make one on another PC:

On Windows 98, click Start, Settings and click Control Panel

Click Add/Remove Programs, then the Startup Disk tab

Click the Create Disk button

When finished, click OK to exit the Add/Remove Programs Properties dialog box

There happens to be a Website, which purports to letting you download a boot disk I have to wonder if it uses Microsoft files Being they are copyrighted, you may wind up with a loosely compatible version of DOS I haven't tried this, myself, but would be willing to, with little hesitation.

Appropriately, the URL is bootdisk.com

I'm not sure exactly what is prompting you to require a boot disk Perhaps a look at the following article will help resolve any problems you may be experiencing Copy the entire URL into your web browser to navigate to this practical article from Microsoft.
