Programs and Files You
Before downloading, I am going to recommend
that you create the following file directory structure so you can follow
Create the following file directory and
Screen Shot: Project Directory
So the main
folder is 'Bootable CD Project'.
Subdirectories under the main
folder are: Boot Image, Downloads, Extracted Files, WinImage.
And subdirectories under
'Downloads' are: Mouse (Microsoft), Win98se OEM Boot Disk,
Like this, if this helps:
|_Win98se OEM Boot
- Download the following to their respective 'Downloads'

WinImage is a slick program--it appears to be the 'Swiss
Army Knife' regarding not just reading boot image files, but also
has the ability to create boot sector files that can be transferred
to optical media making the media bootable! WinImage works not
only with image files that are designed for optical media, but also
works with boot image files that are designed to create boot floppy
disks as well!
It is the 'key' program for creating custom bootable CD/DVD
bootable disks--especially without a floppy drive!
This is a 'Shareware' program. You get 30 actual days to try it,
not 30 days from the date you first use the program.
- Win98se OEM Boot disk
Put this in the 'Mouse (Microsoft)' subdirectory.
Download: The first
'mouse.com' listed at the above link.
- You will need a CD/DVD burning program. The most
common and popular ones are from Nero, and Roxio. Other CD/DVD burning
programs will probably work if they have the option to create a bootable
CD/DVD, but I have no experience with those.
