I've read through a few of these formums but only gotten bits of what I need.

What is it I need to make Dos go if I've installed XP over win98. As far as I know, it wiped out 98 totally.

Something new for me :p

Thanks guys

MS-DOS is no longer with Windows XP. You will need an emulator like DOSBOX to run old DOS games.

There is Command Prompt, which is like DOS, but it may (99% of the time) not work correctly with the old DOS games.

Are there any manuals for this I didn't see any, Running only gives basic dos commands?

well there should be instructions on the site.

You need to mount a directory so it will be a 'drive' to C: and you will need to mount a CD-ROM device.

mount c <directory>

mount d <cd drive> -t cdrom

Those are the commands you need. For example:

mount c C:\MPS
when you type C: it will say C: but in fact it's C:\MPS

mount d d: -t cdrom

This will remember that d: is a cd-rom

Note that not all programs work in DOSBOX, but DOSBOX is the most stable out of them all.
