    Finding DOS (Windows XP SP2)

    I thought I knew what subdir. the DOS files were in. Looked where I thought, but not there. Could someone direct me to the correct place? Thanks.

    There are no DOS files in Windows XP. Windows XP is a Operating System on its own. You may have found them in the Windows 9X-series.

    Are you looking for anything special?

    I downloaded a program to format my 1 G Memory stick. I was going to format it in FAT32 and put the DOS command file, etc. on it. The program asked me where the DOS files were located. Since XP gives you a DOS screen, I thought they were in some subdir. Guess I was wrong. Thanks.

    There should be a copy of Format.com in your WindowsSystem32 folder.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    What you see in XP is not DOS. It is a command line processor that looks like DOS. The command processor CMD.EXE is located in your WindowsSystem32 folder.

    If the purpose of putting some commands on USB stick is to make it bootable, that is not so easy.

    Look at http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=make+USB+bootable and be prepared even some utilities designed to make USB drive bootable will not work for you <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>
