Make a Boot Floppy

You should make a boot floppy even if you intend to boot the system from the hard disk. The reason is that it's possible for the hard disk bootstrap to be mis-installed, but a boot floppy will almost always work. Select ``Make a Boot Floppy'' from the menu and feed the system a blank floppy as directed. Make sure the floppy isn't write-protected, because the software will format and write it. Mark this the ``Custom Boot'' floppy and write-protect it once it has been written.
