Place an empty floppy in the drive. Double click on My Computer and find the floppy drive. Right hand mouse click and select Format. When the Format menu is displayed, select Make System Disc from the list.
That will format your floppy and include the operation system startup files.
Hope that helps.

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.
