Under 2K, what you will need is a boot floppy for Windows 9x or a DOS boot disk. It dosen't matter if the disk is for DOS or Windows, as long as it boots to a prompt. If you need a boot disk, let me know and I can zip up a boot disk and email it to you. Also, you can check out Bootdisk.com for locations to get bootdisks. Remember, it dosen't matter what OS you get as this has nothing to do with the hard drive or the operating system. Any boot disk will so. You just want to make sure, regardless of which youuse, not to sys the hard drive. Need any help, just let me know.
