I see I overlapped with DAVE again.
If you have a recovery disk then you should be able to boot to it without a floppy drive.
The floppy could be useful if you have a Windows 98 operating system disk (as opposed to a recovery disk).
I'm getting the idea you are expecting to put in some code or other to fix this computer. It's not really like that. We need to have some idea what is already on the hard disk and try to diagnose the problem. Most likely you will need to reload Windows somehow, which will require more than a 1.4M floppy disk.
The fact that it is asking for a boot floppy might just mean that it can't find any other bootable disk. This opens up the possibility that you have a hardware fault, such as a faulty hard drive.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
