CD-ROM

Copy the AOATAPI.SYS file from the CD-ROM folder included in the “Programs for Installation” folder, to a floppy disk. Insert the disk in the Legacy PC, and then type
COPY “A:\AOATAPI.SYS C:” at the C Prompt.
Then you must edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files.
At the C prompt type “EDIT AUTOEXEC.BAT”. Place the line “c:\dos\mscdex.exe /d:idecd000”
in the autoexec.bat file and save, then exit.
At the C prompt type “EDIT CONFIG.SYS”. Place the line “device=c:\aoatapi.sys /d:idecd000” in the config.sys and then save, then exit.
Restart the machine and go into Windows. Open the File Manager and now you will see a Drive letter for the CD-ROM.

 

MOUSE FOR MS-DOS

Copy the MOUSE.COM file from the Mouse Driver folder included in the “Programs for Installation” folder, to a floppy disk. Insert the disk in the Legacy PC, and then type “COPY A:\MOUSE.COM C:” at the C Prompt.  At the C prompt type “EDIT AUTOEXEC.BAT”. Place the line “C:\mouse.com”
in the autoexec.bat file and save, then exit.  Restart the machine and go to the DOSSHELL. The mouse should now function in DOS.  This is important because many DOS games require a mouse.
