sys a: anyone?

Postby iblis » Sun Mar 02, 2003 1:47 am

hey, does anyone happen to have, or mind creating, the files for a win98 bootdisk?

i know how to make one myself, but am in a peculiar situation where this isn't an option.

thanks!

you see, that's why my situation is peculiar. as i'm in linux, i can't use a dos or windows executable to get the files. they need to be in a .zip or tar.gz (or tar.bz2) archive.

(i'm trying to avoid having to download, compile, and install wine to get this done)

it's rather like reaching around your elbow to scratch your ass, i know. but that's the breaks. ):

Pardon my confusion, but if you're running *nix... why would you ever need a DOS boot disk? :) Glad you got the problem resolved, though... sorry i wasn't more help
