Managed to get SAM4 Dos to run on XP, but only get 1/2 a screen, at the
top.

Any way to fix this..?

Thanks

Put it in a Window, then bring up Properties on the DOS box. One of
the tabs has a setting for screen size, make sure it's on 80 by 25.

If this doesn't help, run the app from a batch file, and include some
resolution switching commands..

mode con: cols=80 lines=25

might be enough to convince it to run 25 line instead of 50.

Seems XP has both COMMAND.COM and CMD.EXE, they seem to respond in
different ways when running DOS apps.
