    Where can I get

    A good copy on disk of Dos 5.0?

    Building a legacy gaming box, 286 style.
    Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

    Which coder said that nobody could outcode Microsoft in their own OS? Write a bit and make a fortune!

    From the looks of it, MS has a 6.22 download...free, too.

    Maybe Bill's running a fever or something.

    Or you might try the Google wordgame:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search

    And then there's torrents...

    Hello, Mr. & Mrs. ICE

    I will send you a PM.............. I don't think MS will be too bothered, but I do have that which you wish for

    Will it be OK on 3.5" floppies? if you really need it on 5.25" I can do that also, but I would need to install a drive...........

    Errr..... this is legitimate software that is not installed on another computer, and is OTS rather than OEM................like "retail"?



    BTW one of my 286s runs that and Windows 2.03

    3.5 is fine - or you can email attachment if desired. Understood on legit - 5.0 is legit the world round, no copy protection to it and never was. We'll work out the details via PM and thanks.

    hi |3lack|ce

    I tried to email it but it bounced, said it was too big for your mailbox. I've uploaded it to here instead, so you can download it

    cheers,

    I was in traffic this morning and the car in front of me had MS DOS on the plate. Maybe you should ask him.
