Screw It I Figured It Out..
you can't use msdos commands to create a bootable disk in windows ME. if I am wrong on this, please tell me.
i used the windows startup disk option... i think that's what the book was referring to.. since it contains the basics of a command.com.
Not very quick on this forum.. however i do like to input about related topics at the bottom of the screen, that's nice...
however... this book does suck... and i've lost my a drive should've used a school computer..
