If you are looking for the floppy disk to startup your PC for installing Windows, you need to download the file from Microsoft, and create the startup floppy disk set.

There are 4 different versions, so make sure that you get the correct 1.

You can create a bootable floppy from either My Computer or Windows Explorer. Just right click on the floppy drive and select format.

Note: The XP CD is bootable. It is recommended to boot from the CD if you need to re-install XP.

Note 2: If you elect to re-install XP, all of your applications will need to be re-installed along with any Windows updates.

Check the following to download the appropriate boot Disk. This setup when run extracts files onto a set of 6 Floppy Disks. kb/articles/q310/9/94.asp

As said in an earlier post, it is better to use the Windows XP CD as they are bootable.
