need dos on laptop, but have no floppy

hi, i have a compaq presario m2000 with a cd drive, but no floppy. i assume i can't load dos 6.22 on it without a floppy. or is there a way to do it from cd? i also assume that a usb floppy won't work because dos won't have the usb drivers.

so can anyone help me?

  1. Dos??

    I've successfully used the information provided here to load usb drivers for use with a dos system.

    But a bootable CD rom could do it too, just make sure to have the appropriate CDROM/ATAPI drivers loaded so you can access it (Nero boot CD with floppy emulation works ok,)

    Of course, there's the old [cpp]format c: /s[/cpp] and copy the files you need to an install dir and boot directly from the HD itself.
