1.  With your legacy PC off, insert MS-DOS 6.22 disk 1- Setup, in the floppy drive.  Turn on      your legacy PC. (If the PC doesn’t boot into the DOS setup program, you may have to      enter the bios, and check to see that the first drive in the Boot Order is the floppy      drive.  If it isn’t, you must set it as the first boot drive).

   (The Following are a list of the installation screen prompts.  I am using a 4 GB empty hard    drive in this installation. DOS setup will create a 2 GB partition during installation, when    you use a hard drive 2 GB or larger. Later you can create other partitions in the un-    partitioned space.  If you want to create more partition after installing DOS, skip to disk    partitioning after installing DOS.)
