|Is there a program out there called DOSbox. As far as I know it is a term meaning a computer running DOS as the kernel. Windows 98 is considered a DOS box because the Windows 98 OS is shelled on top of a DOS kernel. If you want to run Windows 1 (where the heck you got this version because it was never for resale) inside of Windows 98 then you simply make a PIF file to shell it. |
Your other option is to duel boot the system. Just create a WIN.BAT file in the root C:\ and this will load in place of the WIN.COM shell. Then when you boot the system it will start DOS but never shell Windows 98.
Personally I don't know why you want to run Windows 1 because it was nothing more than a file manager. They added to DOS 5.0 and greater as a program called DOSshell...
I think you can still run dosshell in Windows 98. Just go to the command prompt and type dosshell.
They did away with this with Windows 2000 and NT 4 when they replaced the DOS kernel with OS/2 warp. Have fun with that old stuff.
