Default MS-DOS help

I'm trying to make a 95 machine like new. I formatted the hard drive, and now it needs to boot off a bootable disk. When I try to make it boot the Windows 95 startup disk, it goes to the CDROM drive where the cd is waiting faithfully. Problem is, the computers have no drivers to let it work. The computer can't boot off the CDROM drivers, so I am looking for help. If you think you can do this, I'll email you the drivers from and then you could make the drivers bootable and I could write it to a floppy. Thank-you in advance.

Try this. Download the file and then extract it onto a floppy. This is just a standard Windows 98 boot disk. It will load any CD-ROM that you have attached. After booting with CD-ROM support, just locate the drive by the drive letter and then run whatever file you want from the CD. Fairly straight forward.
