I am installing a DOS program on my PC and have had the issue in the past where I was prompted to INSERT a DOS disk in drive a. In the past I have always an emergency dos disk (not a boot disk - but a dos disk) I think it had a bunch of dos commans on it - not quite sure - but I can no longer read it (it expired.... or something like that.... it is no longer readable in ANY drives)

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO GET ANOTHER ONE OF THESE DOS DISKS? I can not remember where I got this first one from - but I sure wish I made another copy of it since it has saved my butt many times since the late 1990's...

thanks for any help you can give me!!!

Here's a site with lots of different boot disks. All include CD-ROM drivers.

While I can't really legally give you a image of MS-DOS, which is exactly what you need, I can point you to a free download of DR-DOS which should work for you.

If you know somebody with win 98, use their computer to make a boot disk, it's the same as a dos disk. Go to run, type "format a: /s" and it will make the disk. This works in dos, win95 and 98 only.
