I have a new system with WIN2000 Pro and I went to the Help Files to find out how to make boot disks. The ones that consist of 4 floppy diskettes. It tells me to insert the Windows cd-rom in and RUN: d:\Bootdisk\makeboot a: and I checked the Windows cd and I can't even find a folder called bootdisk.

Any ideas?
I want to get these in preparation to do a fresh install of W2K on a factory DELL system and to keep it as clean as possible. I don't like all of the extras that DELL installs.

I am assuming that I need the disks to reformat my HD and to also run FDISK to partition my drive.
