  1. Hi, hope someone can help.

    I have a pc running Windows 95 but have a programme i need to run on
    MS-Dos. Does anyone know (In simple steps) how i can automatically get this
    pc to automatically start in MS-Dos instead of Win 95 and also execute the
    following commands so the programme will start up also automatically:-
    cd/news (<- shold be a backslash but my key isnt working)

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Open a command prompt and type

    attrib -H -R C:\msdos.sys <enter>
    notepad C:\msdos.sys

    Edit the line BootGUI=1 to BootGUI=0

    notepad C:\autoexec.bat

    add the lines
    cd \news

    Save, reboot.
    When you want to launch W95, type 'win' from commmand prompt.

    Edit the autoexec.bat

    put a REM in front of WIN (or delete the line completely)

    add to the autoexec.bat

    cd/news - or D drive assumed - D:\news

    To start Win95 from DOS just type in WIN
