Why use a boot disk? Just the F8 key at the start up and go to 'dos' from there also known as command prompt.

If it helps, in Windows XP, selecting the option to Format a Floppy Disk lets you "Create an "MS-DOS Start Up Disk". This has far fewer files on it than a Win98 boot floppy created from Win98's Control Panel.
