    Hi everyone:

    My DOS days are far behind me and I need a reminder. I have a file I need to run from DOS to determine the chipset of my video adapter. Once I get to the C prompt, do I just type the file name in and hit enter?

    C:/>S3id.exe

    (Assuming it is on the C: drive)

    Thanks!

    That will work, but all you have to type is the
    name without the ".EXE" part. This assumes
    that the file is in your path. If not, you must
    change directory (cd\) to the appropriate
    directory.

    For example if the file is in c:\tools, type:

    cd\tools

    press ENTER

    then type:

    S3id

    and press ENTER.

    Cheers, Mac
