You can't create a disk to boot into dos like you could with Win98.

You can create setup disks (4 of them) to install from & you should be able to get into the recovery console (limited dos type functionality) from them.
To create them run the prog in the boot disk dir on the install cd.

You can create the 4 set boot disk using the Windows 2000 professional CD-ROM, open the boot disk folder and execute either makeboot.exe ore makebt32.exe, a command prompt window that asks you to insert a floppy disk into drive A:\, continue the process until you have created all four disks.

Note: use makeboot.exe if you are running in DOS environement or Windows for workgroup.
Use makebt32.exe if you are running in Windows 95,98,ME, NT or 2000.

Regards

No you can't install it from a 98 boot disk but you can install it from Win98.

You should be able to boot from the Win2k setup cd. If you can't & you don't have another os installed you will have to make the boot floppies.
