Offer, MS-DOS 6.22 English 5.25 360K upgrade
Many years ago, when I was starting out with my own PC compatible, I had an old IBM 5150 with only a 360k floppy drive and a 10-meg hd.
I bought MS-DOS 6.22, but, had no way to install it because it came on 1.44MB disks.
There was a request form for an alternate disk size and I sent for 360K floppies, and got them, 13 of them in all. It was a full upgrade set, the kind that normally ships on 3 3.5 1.44 MB disks.
I still have images of these disks and wonder if, just for the sake of a little more completeness this would be something the maintainers would like to add to the library.
Installing this one is tricky, since you have to change from disk 1 to disk 3 and back to 1, since not all necessary files would fit on one disk. They even put the "AUTOEXEC.BAT" file on disks 1 and 3, to facilitate this if the set were booted from floppy, but, not sure why you would even want to do this.
There is an oversight in these disks--when MicroSoft created them, they forgot to have setup copy the file "UNDELETE.EXE" automatically. So, after you install this, you don't have the UNDELETE command. You need to manually copy "UNDELETE.EXE" from disk 10 to your DOS directory.
I called MicroSoft and told them about this. They said they would check into it. They got back to me and acknowledged this oversight, but, were unwilling to redo the set, for obvious reasons. They just told me to manually copy the file as mentioned above.
So, is this something that would be of interest? I wouldn't call it useful, but, might be of interest for the curious.
