Depends on the version of Windows.

For XP, or W2K, you likely need to download the correct boot floppy creation program.

For W98, I believe a SCSI driver is an option.

You can also check the mfgs web site for OS installation instructions.
If your lucky, they have a bootdisk file that you can download.

Another resource, is www.bootdisk.com

They have links to a number of floppy image files for booting up various systems.
