windows recovery

I have been asked to restore a computer, it is win98, the owner has lost all original start-up cd's and floppy's, I believe in general that mine will do the job, but what I would like advice on is:- could my restore disk work on the other system, rather than wiping and trying to start from scratch, which would probably be with a lot of help from you wonderful people as well.

Your restore disk would not work if used on another pc.

This is where I show my lack of knowledge (as usual). Doesn't a floppy recovery disk for Win98 prepare the disk for the installation of the OS e.g. formatting or am I missing something?
