      Just format a floppy in NT, its as easy as that. Then copy Boot.ini, NTLDR and NTDetect.com.
      Formating in NT automatically points the MBR (master boot record) to NTLDR. Format /s points MBR to IO.sys.

      Or, if you need a setup diskette set, run winnt32 from the CD and use the command line options. See winnt32 /? for the details.

      Answer #1 is an interesting approach that I haven’t tried.

      However, the more traditional approach is to run winnt32 from the NT install CD and make the boot set.

      The command line for that would be:

      x:\i386\winnt32 /ox
