Now i'm not sure about this so check it out for yourself but I always thought the files required for booting xp were too large for a floppy.

You could make a win98 bootdisk but you would only be able to access your hdd is it was formatted FAT32 as opposed to NTFS.

there are third party CD boot disks that you could look into, Bart PE springs to mind.
Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

Try to make a boot disk yourself. In my computer, format a blank floppy as ms-dos boot disk.
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
