I've been trying to reload a missing Msvcrt dll file.To do this I need to get into Dos but my start- up floppy doesn't work, I can only get the normal start-up screen.Can anybody help? Thanks, Hecate. (Windows ME)

You need to go into the BIOS and change a setting, so it starts up first with A:\.

To get into BIOS restart your PC and start pressing DELETE.
