Response to: missing PC DOS Boot Disk

I was unaware of the fact that a PC DOS Boot Disk image was not included with every version of VPC-- it depends on the version (for which OS) you order.

This is explained in the "Installing Other OSes Read Me" file in the "Installing Other OSes" folder.

I don't know it the readme file is included with all versions.

I tried, but am unable to access the connectix web site to see if the file is available there.

If you can't get a DOS boot disk image as described in the above readme file, contact me directly and I will try to help.

    I've found a couple different boot images. While they allow me to boot from them, they are boot disks only, they do not create the prompt to copy files to C: as described on Page 4 of the above instructions.

    There is a boot image provided with the WIN98 version of VPC I have, but it is a WIN 98 boot disk not a PC-DOS boot disk. Like the boot images I downloaded, it does not create the prompt to copy files to C:.

    I also poked around the connectix site and could not find the PC-DOS disk image available for download.

    Can I boot into DOS in VPC and create my own boot disk? I've read through "DOS for Dumimies" and can't find any instructions for doing so?

    Or do I need to shell additional money to buy VPC for DOS?
