Do you have a set of MS-DOS 6.x floppies? If not, what version or Windows do you have? Larry

Type ver in a DOS window. A bootable floppy made by putting a blank floppy in the floppy drive and using the Windows Explorer to right-click the drive, Format, and opting to transfer system files will work just fine. Larry
