in DOS
If it's okay I'd like to piggyback on to this thread with the following: I have a machine that has a weird dual boot setup, with Windows 98 and "wary puppy Linux" set up using GRUB. I actually like this combination as Linux makes it easier to do certain things on the windows partition, like copy …
