last year on SSB.
Booting to DOS is no problem, change WIN.COM to WIN95.COM. 

But I also need to change the keyboard type from FINNISH to US. As I recall
last year changing in WIN95 was not enough, as the computer was essentially
booting to DOS. There was a file somewhere that I edited from DOS using
EDIT. In the file was a line signifying keyboard type, and I changed "SU" to
"US" (I assume SU = Finnish in their language). My trusty RF proof US
keyboard then functioned like I was at home.

I cannot recall what this file was - anyone know?

p.s. Guess I should have saved last year's notes!
