Boot Disc

How many files should I expect to see on my Boot Disc and what files are they by name?

Is my System disc same as the Boot Disc?

I am using Windows 95 as my Operating System.

various files could be on it

the key ones are

autoexec.bat and config.sys

however it may also include a whole host of dos files for Windows 95

to use it you just put it in the floppy drive and reboot and if all goes well you will end up with a black screen and the a:\ prompt.

Just one thing, the Win-95 boot disc does not have CD-Rom support. I recall that I made my own special one that included it.

It a long time since I used Win-95, but you could try using a Win-98 one instead. This has CD-Rom support.
