: I know this may not be a surprise, but what do you want me to tell this this guy? He seems to have a major problem. Thank!


Hi Steve,

: I have it hug, problem. : My Company has spent a _BIG_ sum to be able to burn DR, DOS into our Notebook ( touch screen ) computers’ bio’S, MicroSoft would not even _talk_ to us about doing that so we are stuck with our only option.

: I have so many problems running Windows on 6.0 DR DOS that it does’nt deserve a bug report, it won't get that far! We are couming on Windows for Pen computing, ( which run’s flawlesiy on DR 5.0 ) What can we ( I ) do?

: Windows does not recognise the EMM386 driver nor the IPX (novell) driver, I get 2 or 3 error numbers when it boots ( without any cache or memory drivers working ) And you we all I have to help me. : I need some help, : Marty

: Bradsi, We need to get an answer posted for this guys asap I’d like to just tell him that he is SOL, but in nicer terms of course, I'll just clone all the postings you’ve already done on this. You OK with that.

: Bradc, who in OEM should this guy talk with about putting MS-DOS in ROM. We should just get them connected now.

: ok, post a nice SOL msg. bottom line is that he needs msdos- something that is compatible with windows ...
