I got an old 386 machine and I finally got it to boot. Now I need help trying to get a boot floppy. None of the tutorials online help.I would like to get MS-DOS 4.0 on it because that's the most time accurate version.

Yes, this Pc supports 3.5 inch and 5.25-inch floppies. i have an assortment of both. i have a 3.5-inch usb reader/writer and a connection to the internet. I was asking where to download the ms-dos file and how to set it up on the floppy.

Yes, the first link I posted has all boot disks from DOS to windows.

You can use win32 disk imager to write the disks, be very very careful in choosing what device to write to, you can potentially destroy your data.
