    I'm typing instructions for someone on making a boot disk for windows 98 and I don't have a 98 machine here. Does anyone know the path/filename of the sys command? I think it's something like c:\windows\sys.cmd

    Don't you mean sys.com?

    If you are looking for the command that will copy the files to a drive to make it bootable, you must be talking about sys.com. It is located in the c:\windows\command\ directory.

    The easiest way to make a 98 boot disk is go to the c:\windows\command\ folder and open the bootdisk.bat file or run it from dos. This will create a bootdisk from the files already on your pc. I'm not sure if it will put sys.com on there though?

    ....Anway hope this was a help
