    XP Boot Disk

    My friend asked me how to create an XP boot disk. I checked to see if it was in the add/remove programs as it was there for ME, but isnt there in XP. Looked around a bit more, and couldnt find it.

    How do I create one, do I need to create it from the XP CD?

    Why would you need one? Isn't booting from the CD just as good?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    My friend wanted it. I dont even know why he needs one, he just asked how to make one, and I had no clue.

    When I installed it, I just booted a ME boot disk.

    Exactly, in Windows XP, it's an option where you format a floppy disk...
