Create a Fault Tolerant Boot Disk

Format a floppy in XP
Copy ntldr, boot.ini, and netdetect.com to floppy. You will also need bootsect.dos if dual booting and ntbootdd.sys if using scsi.

This will boot XP if startup files are corrupt or if the first disk of a mirror goes bad and you need to boot to the second. It DOES NOT leave you at the command prompt.
