utility, as detailed here, and numerous white papers on the Microsoft Windows 2000 site - www.microsoft.com/windows2000, or in the various techtarget offerings. Briefly, you would do the following:

    1. From the Start menu, click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type the path of the Rbfg.exe tool, and then click OK. The default path is: RISservernameReminstAdmini386Rbfg.exe
    3. Insert a formatted floppy disk into the disk drive.
    4. Click the destination drive option, and then click Create Disk.
    5. Click Close, and then remove the floppy disk from the disk drive.
