Hi, again, I`m not realy sure if this is the right way to reply. I expect
you`ll let me know if it`s wrong...

Hi, I`ve just installed a free-dos on a 486 that I have.<snip>
Could someone give me some advise?.
Thanks.

Well, ripcord is an old version, try getting the b9 distro (that's the
newest). It should give you /something/... I hope...

Is it because your trying to "cd a:" when you should be doing an "a:"
to switch drives? Sorry if that's too obvious, I've been confused on
such things in the past :)

just type A:
can you enter the following command please: VER /R
so we can see how old your FreeDOS is (post the output on this mailinglist)?

FreeDOS kernel version 0.0.35"<..
