Two options that I am aware of:

First is to follow the tutorial on http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/pm8.html

The second way you might consider doing this is to dispense with the mouse and fit Partition Magic onto the one floppy (That's the way I've always done it, got fed up of carrying so many floppies around):

Take a Windows 95/98 boot disk containing only io.sys, msdos.sys and command.com and copy onto it (from the 2 Partition Magic floppies) the following:

autoexec.bat
pqmagic.exe
pqmagic.ovl
pqmagic.pqg
pqpb.rtc.
zabout.pqg

Oen of them is hidden so make sure you track it down.

Edit your Autoexec.bat so it looks as follows:

Code:
@ECHO Off
PROMPT $P$G

REM -------------------------------------------------------
REM -- DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE! IF YOU WISH TO ADD NETWORK --
REM -- OR CD-ROM DRIVERS, CUSTOM KEYBOARDS, ETC., PLEASE --
REM -- EDIT AUTOEXE2.BAT INSTEAD.                        --
REM -------------------------------------------------------

REM IF EXIST AUTOEXE2.BAT CALL AUTOEXE2.BAT

REM ECHO.
REM ECHO   Please Insert PartitionMagic Disk 2
REM ECHO.
REM ECHO.
REM ECHO   *** Press Any Key to Continue ***
REM ECHO.
REM PAUSE >NUL

ECHO  PartitionMagic 8.0
ECHO  Copyright 1994-2002, PowerQuest Corporation
ECHO  All rights reserved.
ECHO.
ECHO  Loading PQMAGIC 8.  Please wait...
ECHO.

PQMAGIC


If you are hellbent on having a mouse you could experiment with putting cutemouse on there (it's pretty small) and edit your autoexec.bat accordingly.

If space is not an issue for you go with the first option above (the tutorial).

By the way, any fans of Drive Image or Drive Copy (binned by Symantec) can do the same - the files are named similarly. Also Ghost will work off the one floppy.

Has anyone tried either method with the XP startup disks?
