now if only they included USB mouse support......(it's what I have) :)

From Win 98SE , grab the"hidusb.sys" file and copy to your floppy. Load it in config.sys, or in autoexe.bat before PQMAGIC.exe. USB mouse should then work. If it doesn't, you may need a vendor specific mouse driver.

Look Pal whats ya problem? The man ask for the .bat I supplied it.

The whole point is to help out where you can I had a problem Alanoll & Armydoc gave us a hand.

To be honest this board can do without smart asses.

If you do have a solution how about parting with it.............

Have you tried altering your boot sector properties in winimage before you save it. I changed mine as Armydoc suggested to win 95 dos & worked like a charm.

A question to Alanoll, Mavericks or ArmyDoc you have writting that you created the

image with Winimage what version ?

Because in my version (6.10.6100) I can´t set the bootsector to Dos6.22 I have these options:

MS-Dos = MS-Dos5.0

Win 95 = MSwin4.0

Win NT = MSwin4.0

Do you have any good ideas why ???

I actually posted this question for you at June 2 2004 at 04:31 am but mayby you havn´t seen it.

Good idea to try to change the boot sector, but it would be nice to have a answer from you regarding the Winimage version....

Thanks a lot

Sorry one more thing Mavericks.

I have now in the AIO folder 5 images that I have made, the boot sector for these is like this :

98SE.IMA = MSWin4.1

PM8.IMA = MSWin4.0

PM8T.IMA =MSDos5.0 ( only made to test if it matters with the bootsector )

PODC.IMA = OpenDos7

UNBXP.IMA = MSWin4.1

First of all why is the boot sector different ???

They all work, except PM8 and PM8T that was why I thougt that something must be wrong in the autoexec.bat

Thanks again

the others work because they have a valid boot sector. once youmodify them, they won't anymore depending on how you modified it.

Others, it's just the version the disk uses. Some are picky.

I have 6.10.6100, but I've never actually done the boot sector thing. Mine just worked.lol.
