Not likely.

Such was never developed for mass consumption. You'll find some spotty support in Norton's Ghost, but that's it.

Witness the lack of supplied DOS USB drivers and what you find on the internet.

Also witness your post is doomed. You didn't reveal what USB device you needed support for.

Thanks Bob, its for USB CD, since

I have an old laptop that doesn't have a CD-rom, and I need to reinstall windows in it.

In the internet I read about Duse4.4 files, in bootdisk.com,

Any comment on how to use it?

Thank You

Never found them to work.

Best of luck with duse.

About said laptop. How did they used to install dos/windows/other? Sometimes we find some old laptop and the quick/dirty way out is to yank the hard disk out, and load dos/windows files on it in a disktop. NOT INSTALL WINDOWS!!! Just load the i386 or such directory on it.

But that's a fools game since it can't be repaired with ease.
