Hi,

I have downloaded a 98 boot floppy and i wont to run a dos game but the game is 6 meg and wont fit
on a floppy,so if i boot with the 98 floppy and change the A prompt to C prompt would i be able to get to the game on my C drive and run it?

Can i get 6 meg on a 1.4 Mb floppy?,and how do you get a ms-dos batch file to run from a floppy?
Hmm,what about if.... i created a cd with nero that acts like a floppy? then could i change the A prompt to the D prompt and run it?

You want to run a dos based game, with a widows XP operating system?

Is the game on CD and with an exe.?

In the run box, type cmd and enter. you should now have a dos window reading C:\ Documents and settings\acolyte> (acolyte or your user name in XP)

put cd.. at the end and enter to change the directory to

C:\ Documents and Settings

then do again to get to C:
Now change the C:\ to the letter of the cdrom you want to install from, say E:\ and enter.

You should now have your cdrom drive prompt. put in the game exe. and install the game. This should leave a shortcut on the desktop.

When you want to use the game, insert the cdrom and press the shortcut on the desktop, this should automatically open a dos window and start the game.

It doesnt have an exe file the game starts with a MS-DOS batch file.
