OS Windows 98.
Have just made a Boot Disk(just in case) in the
Add/Remove Programmes facility. When I tested it by restarting the computer with the disk in the floppy drive, the computer just ignores the drive ands boots OK normally. Can any kind soul please tell me what I have done wrong please and how do I rectify it?

Check the BIOS settings to ensure that it boots from floppy first, rather than from CD-ROM or HDD.
