I have a W98 machine on which the operating system has crashed, and I'm going to have to reload W98. I can't boot to the hard disk, so I've booted using the emergency diskette, and am saving files to a zip drive. I need to use some DOS commands which aren't available, such as DELTREE, and XCOPY. How can I make those DOS commands work in this situation?

Win98 or Win98SE?

I don't know if it matters WIN95 or Win98 or Win98SE, but I have both of those files for any one of the 3 Operating Systems.

Let me know the O.S and I will attach them in the next few minutes if you like. They're pretty small files.

:D

In fact ..... here they are for Windows98 SE

Rename the file to UTILS.ZIP.

And just out of curiosity... why transmit them as .txt, and rename to .zip, as opposed to sending them as .zip in the first place?

You can only attach files here that are under 204k and only with the following extensions; gif jpg png txt bmp jpeg
Keeps the server from overloading, and prevents infections.
