    Hi plibitz,
    You will need a winME startup disk. Insert the disk, Go to Start, Click on Shutdown, Click on Restart. When you are asked select Minimal Boot. You should get a DOS prompt

    I tried this, but when the choices appear the keyboard does not respond, so it times out and opens the pre-selected, selection 1. (help file) What now?
