    How to make dos boot disk..??

    I wanted to upgrade with my new MS Win XP Home upgrade.
    I happened to be using Win2000 Pro and my upgrade won't work with Win2000. I need to get my Win2000 off and install Win Me or Win98 before my upgrade will install. How do I get Dos boot disk in order for me to get dos prompt to do fdisk and reformat my hard drive?
    I want to get my Win2000 operating system off my computer.
    Can someone help me?
    Thanks!

    If you still have your crash disk for Win 98, it has what you need including CD Rom Driver. It is a boot disk. Look at the help section. It is something like "format /s" that formats and gives you system files only.

    This should do ya!

    Have you thought of just duel booting? This way if you don't like XP Special Ed. you won't have to reformat again and install 2k again.
    On a side note, XP spec. ed. is pretty much a face lift for 2k. Except, older hardware and software are more compatible with 2k. Better see if you can find some drivers for your hardware for XP before installing it.
