Dos this way will not recognize modern harddrives though. Youll have to save your c++ programs on a floppy and then boot to windows and copy them to your harddrive. The xp command.com does not have a full dos instruction set. It is less than functional for someone who wants to learn c from the ground up-get dos 6.22 and learn it-then take a shot at programing in C++.
I see you must mean,config.sys
(Isn't that expanded memory ?)
Of course C:\Dos doesn't exist in XP.
I have sent this to many satisfied W9x and Me game users .
Not much else needs it.
