I'm trying to copy a directory full of small text files to a dos diskette.
I can use doswrite to copy each file individually, but is there a way to
copy the entire directory at once.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance

You can download the mtools package from your local Bull mirror site; it has
more sophisticated (and more DOS-like) tools.
