    Not from DOS itself, there is no operating system support in DOS. In order to use USB devices in that operating system, your system's BIOS must support it.

    *all bumbed out* thats what i thought however i was in hopes that a "major geek" would know of a work around.

    Your advice even if it was not "the right answer" is greatly appreciated. The right answer i was looking for was oh yes you can have usb support from dos with only a few mouse clicks. (haha) i was dreaming.

    Hey this Google toolbar is fun! Check out http://www.opus.co.tt/dave and drop down to USB4DOS. Don't know if it'll help, but kinda fun thinking back to the old DOS days. Check out the other stuff while you're there, you're the DOS jockey!!! (REAL Player for DOS...who'd a thunk?)
