I work on win 3.x sytems alot and I think I know a fix to your problem. Can't promise it will work since it's a fairly old fix. Mcafee uses dos to boot and loads the dos command.com into conventional memmory unless you have both Himem.sys and emm386.exe in memmory. Copy himem.sys and emm386.exe into the root of your floppy. They are probably located in the windows directory. Then add this line to the TOP of the config.sys on the mcafee floppy and try your bootdisk again.

DEVICE=A:\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=A:\EMM386.EXE
DOS=HIGH UMB
