hi kim Et Al

re win 95/98 and dos mode

there is a reasonably simple way to make the boot win boot dos choice

edit the text file MSDOS.SYS  (you will have to change its attributes from
hidden & system first)

ADD the line

and then you will have a boot choice menu presented for 30 seconds at boot
time. it will default through to windows after the wait time, unless you
choose another menu item.

to control the default time and default boot

BootMenuDefault=(number)  this is the number of the item on the boot menu
you want it to default boot, typically 1 for windows  I changed this to
boot to a command prompt (usually 6) on all our expedition computers to
simplify matters there.

after whatever dos work you need to do is done, WIN at the command prompt
will load windows normally.
