windows boot disk image


im trying to install win4lin on my laptop
im going to install windows 98 se

after asking for my windows cd, it asks for a boot floppy or a windows 98 se boot floppy image.
this would be easy if i had a floppy drive on my computer, but since its a laptop, i dont.

I found some images in putergeek.com but they are all .exe's and dont work for win4lin.
i also tried telling it that the cdrom is a boot disk, but it doesnt accept it
do u know where can i get this disk image??

You have to make a boot disk in windows 98 then copy it to the hard drive of the laptop then tell the program to look there for the boot image.
