   The startup disk contains a handful of basic utilities you can use to
   fix your broken Win95 installation, and even uninstall Win95. The
   traditional DOS utilities for disk management are in there, as are a
   version of edit, regedit, and the uninstaller.
   
   To make a startup disk, answer "YES" to the question about the startup
   disk. If you skipped this part and want to make up a startup disk, run
   Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and hit the "Startup Disk" tab.
     * Notes regarding REGEDIT on the startup disk
       
   The version of regedit on the startup disk only lets you import and
   export Registry pieces (or the whole Registry) to text files you can
   edit using good ol' edit. To build an editable copy of the Registry,
   change to your Win95 directory and type:

REGEDIT /E REGBCKUP.REG

   This will export the two Registry files to a text file with said name.
   Copy this text file to a separate floppy disk (it'll exceed 1 MB
   easily) and edit it as you feel necessary.
   
   To completely re-create a Registry from this backup text file, from
   your Win95 directory type this:

REGEDIT /C REGBCKUP.REG

   Regedit can also import and export portions of the Registry. Outside
   of Win95, type regedit without parameters for a list of extra options.
