    I have a refurbished Toshiba Notebook loaded with Windows 98SE and I wanted to be prepared to reformat and restore should the occasion arise.
    I followed these instructions from cyberwalker:
    "This is important, as you'll need access to your CD-ROM drive to do a new Windows98 install.
    Once the boot disk is created, test it to see if you can access your CD-ROM drive. To do this reboot the machine with the floppy disk in the floppy drive and when the machine restarts choose "Start with CD-ROM support".
    At the prompt type d: and hit the Enter key. If the machine responds with D:> you are in business.
    Next type "format c:" without the quotes (and hit ENTER"
    Things went ok and I stopped before "format c:" and typed "exit"(without the quotes ) but couldnt, as I would get message "bad command" or something like that.
    Could you please tell me how to exit properly.
    Thanks

    There is no real exit from a boot disk. It is a DOS command. Turn off the computer.

    Simply remove the floppy and reboot.
