of these o/s at any time. Note also that if you are going to use MSCLIENT you have to be very careful to match HIMEM, EMM386 with IFSHLP.SYS. Note also that Dos622 is fussy about the actual sector locations of IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS -- Gerry Hickman (London UK

Hi Eric, Of course you will then need a DOS USB driver first before you can run SYS on the drive... I recommend USBASPI4 and ASPIDISK But surely if the user's BIOS supports booting from USB it will also support USB emulation and if it does, the user won't need any USB drivers... -- Gerry
