Do you mean a Windows 98 boot disk? Or a Mandrake 
boot disk? Windows 98 is easy just goto Add/Remove 
Programs under the Control Panel and click on 
the "Startup Disk" tab. There should be one 
option "Create Disk". Under Mandrake I don't know yet 
cos I only installed 7.2 yesterday myself. Although there 
is an option in the installation procedure which I decided 
to skip cos I couldn't be bothered to root out a 
floppy.. :)

Hope that helps,
