Specific to the make and model drive. I never tell people to try generic versions or duplicate web pages about how to edit the config.sys and autoexec.bat since that would be duplicating easy to find stuff.
Instead I want to know the make, model of the CD/DVD drive and if there is DOS support I'll share the link to that and an example config.sys and autoexec.bat.
I also don't teach how to edit files. If you ran DOS, that's done with edit.
I've just been given an old PC with no hard drive. I've stuck one of my old harddrives in but it isn't bootable and I need to install Win 98 on it.
I've changed the boot sequence in the bios for booting from DVD drive but when I boot up, the dos-prompt comes up but i can't get my DVD recognised.
So . . .two questions really. Do I need to format the drive (don't have fdisk, sadly) and how can I get support for the DVD drive ??
