DOS Question: 6.2 and 2.1GA compatibility

DOS Question: 6.2 and 2.1GA compatibility

Post by Dick Sidbu » Fri, 14 Oct 1994 23:38:21



Currently, I'm running 2.1GA with Boot Manager.  I have
DOS 5.0 installed for my DDS needs.  Will I run into
problems if I change my DOS to 6.2?  (QEMM 7.5 will give me
lots more memory for the apps that I still need to run
in DOS if I use 6.2).

Thanks

No problem, you just can't use DBLSPACE and have OS/2 see it.

OS/2 reports both drives, (the host & the compressed) as 2 drives
containing identical files. But I got rid of compression anyways.

Boot Manager, OS/2, DOS 6.2, Linux w/LILO have coexisted very well,
I doubt you'll have _any_ problems. Good way to go, 6.2.

Take care.

1. Dos 6.2/Doublespace and OS/2 2.1

I have a few questions re MS-DOS 6.2 and OS/2 2.1

1) Will 6.2 work in a VDM using the techniques for loading a specific version
of DOS.

2) Will the double space feature work when used in conjunction with 1) - Are
there any limitations?

3) Is it possible to run WIN-OS2 from a specfic version of DOS.

Thank you for your help,
Nicholas Waltham
