Can you recommend a software that will allow me to copy (1) hard drive to another in DOS? I need to make copies for (50) computers that will be going to a school in South America. Thanks a lot.

I use and recommend Norton Ghost. It can make a copy of almost any file system from a drive/partition to another drive/image/partition/network drive. Its really easy to use and can be used from Windows or DOS via a bootable disk.

As a free alternative, you can download a utility from most hard drive manufacturers that can also do a disk to disk copy.

Thanks for the response. I would love to use ghost and I have Symantec System Works but I need to boot off floppy (DOS) and not enough room on floppy (unless you know of another way). Thanks again.

The Norton Ghost program can make a bootdisk with Ghost on it. Look thru the options, its there.

You can also use GHOST to make a bootable CD image that will allow you to boot the CD and restore the image, over and over again. :D
