Hi
start->setting->control panel->add/remove program-(TAB) startup disk->creat disk

You need one floppy only.
It will have the CD-ROM drivers and you can use it in dos mode.

Good luck

The drivers will not be automatically copied when you "system" the hard drive, unless you are able to go in and re-write the code for command.com to copy the drivers and autoexec.bat and config.sys from the boot floppy.

Format the hard disk useing the standard format command.

Then use the copy command;
copy a:*.* c:*.*
to copy the startup disk to the C drive.
(I may be a little off with the command syntax, I don't have a dos book handy to double check)

Then run the system command
sys c:
from the A: prompt.

Now your hard drive will function just like the boot floppy.

Alternately, you could install the DOS CD drivers from the floppy disk that came with the CD drive.
