System disk to floppy

Question

When powering up PC, it goes through a couple gyrations, then to "It is now OK to shut off Computer". Nothing normal ever appears on the screen, like Windows 98 or any error messages. Can't remember how many beeps, but it doesn't recognize the floppy drive. What to do? Also, she doesn't have a system disc, but I do on a floppy. Can I copy the system disc onto a CD and will she be able to use it?
