Default Downloading onto multiple floppies

Help me please! I have a mild touch of computer down syndrome. I need to download a file onto 6 floppies in order to fix a problem on my laptop called "unmountable boot volume" but when i download the file it is too big to fit on one floppy. How do i divide it amongst multiple floppies?? I am using Windows 2000 OS.

Save me

Crappy software scripting....

Should have split the file into six seperate boot discs automatically. Can't you just run your Win2K repair CD?

Don't have one and that is the main problem otherwise this would be a simple operation. The laptop that has the problem is running XP home and that is the one i dont have the disk for. the laptop i am using to make the floppies in order to fix the messed up laptop is running 2000.

Thanks for the idea, anyone else.

Ok I suggest your get ride of that piece of junk you call a boot disk.

Download this and extract

This program will automatically split the file into 6 and will tell you when to insert the next floppy cheers.
