Hello, i have tried to run  CT DOS from my USB 2.0 64Mb stick and it works
ok, but i think is a little bit slow (without smartdrive).
I have done this: started win 98 machine, dos prompt, sys F: (my usb stick)
after that copy there autoexec.bat, config.sys,
himem.sys and emm386.exe and CT dos 10version.
Pc Machine is a new P4 2.4GHz (ASUS mainboard Intel chipset), in bios
enabled booting from USB devices! That's all, very easy and you dont need
any boot CD or floppy...
What about old P3/P2 machines who cant boot from USB stick? I tried also
this, i have dowloaded from some internet site USB dos drivers, copied them
to floopy and one of my sticks (16Mb old one from Compaq) worked ok with
that drivers the new one with USB 2.0 didnt want to work with that drivers!.
I have never tried this in contests!

> Good morning, all:
> Mal, N7MAL, mentioned to me a much easier way to create a bootable
> DOS CD.  If you have Roxio Easy CD Creator (which I have pre-installed)
> on my Dell laptop computer (I have Version 5), you can start Easy CD
> Creator,  go to File->New CD Project->bootable CD, and you get

> If you don't have Roxio, you can download free tools from the Web

> you want the instructions for doing it the hard way!  :-)
> This is cool.  It looks like you can directly create a bootable CD from
> a floppy disk drive (or a disk device using VFD (Virutal Floppy Driver)
> if you don't have a disk drive.
> This way, you can configure a Windows 98SE boot floppy (basically
> DOS 7.1) the way you want it and instantly create a bootable CD!
> Thanks, Mal!
