    Could someone possibly advise please.

    Scenario.
    Want to recover user files from a Win98SE system which will not load to the
    desktop in normal or safe mode, using cable connection to another PC via
    parallel port.
    Total Commander (ex Windows Commander) installed on both machines so no
    problem with Microsoft's direct cable connection application. Can only boot
    to DOS level successfully on faulty machine.
    There is a driver you can download (and I have) which will allow you to
    connect to the faulty machine at DOS level, LPTDOS. Unfortunately, it does
    not recognise long filenames.

    Why not put the HDD in another box as a slave, to recover the data.

    Cheers,
