Hello,Kevin, and everyone,

to use,..I dont have the address handy, as I am at a iinter net cafe, but a 
search on google or yahoo,HP FORMAT tool, will bring it up, also I have had 
good success with formating the data stick, useing the format/s command in 
freedos, also had success with one I formatted useing HP tool, and the boot 
files on a Floppy formatted with windows, I then copied the dos files from the 
freedos CD, to the data stick, and it booted, and ran freedos well, it is cause 
back when I first started to try free dos, I had a damaged HD, and nothing 
installed right, lots of problems..
