DOS FAQ by Christoph Fuchs
First, you need a computer which is IBM compatible. The computer should have 640 KB of RAM or even more :)) (in some cases it will work with fewer RAM, too, but I would use more). Then, you need a floppy drive, a harddisk or something simular. It would be great to have a keyboard or a mouse and if you want to see something you might need a monitor... but that's all. For those who always were happy with Windows it might be annoying to type a lot at the command prompt.
HPLX.NET FAQs: THE FAQ
Yes, users have reported success with DOS-based Quicken through version 8 (most recent DOS Quicken version). Recent versions may require more memory than is available under the system manager, but it's easy enough to exit the system manager and run Quicken directly from the DOS prompt, or run it in a separate Software Carousel work area. The "disable filer" trick may allow you to squeeze even the latest Quicken in under the system manager.

MS-DOS window does not allow full-screen option The best you can get is an emulated full screen mode, by using a special font.
If you wanted to run something like a DOS "Dir" command then you must run it though the command interpreter (command.com or cmd.exe depending on your OS). The @Comspec macro contains the correct location of this file. You should use the RunWait() function as it waits for the DOS program to finish before continuing with the next line of the script. Here is an example of running the DOS Dir command on the C: drive: (effectively running the command command.com /c Dir C:\ )
DOS FAQ by Christoph Fuchs
DOS is a Disk Operating System, that means it's an OS that uses a disk. Operating systems for IBM PCs since the early 1980s were called DOS. DOS consists of the command prompt, mostly command.com and two kernelfiles. That's a basic DOS system. DOS was a mainstream OS until Windows 95 (which also uses DOS, btw) threw it off the market.
Frequently Asked Questions
The PROmpter Teleprompter Software package will run on any IBM PC or compatible, 486 or faster, Desktop or Laptop computer, with VGA graphics, running DOS or Windows 95/98/SE/ME/2000 operating systems. Don't go to the expense of purchasing a high speed computer just to dedicate to teleprompting.
FAQ about gear cutting, gear software and gear design
Users of all PC-based Windows desktop systems can create an icon that will let you start DOS applications with a "click" of the left mouse button. CPC-HOB for DOS is used here as an example. Enter Windows and select a group window where you want the new CPC-HOB icon. A group window is selected when it is displaying its icons and its title bar is highlighted. Click on File option. Choose New form the File Menu. The NEW PROGRAM OBJECT window should open.

MS-DOS isn't gone, its just harder to get too. Just create a Windows Start Up disk and you can easily get to MS-Dos. Programs like Scandisk no longer need to run in Dos if there is a bad shutdown, Microsoft has improved the program to run when Windows restarts. No. Creating a boot disk to run a bios update is easily done. Read our tip for details on how to create one.
FAQ : John Dailey Software
With the use of DOS or Windows emulators, our software can theoretically be ran under a wide variety of operating systems including, but not limited to: OS/2, Linux, and MacOS. To our knowledge, some of our products have been successfully ran under DOSEmu and Virtual PC.
RXN Communications FAQ - UUCP
UUCP implementations vary from operating system to operating system. Non-UNIX operating systems typically require additional software to provide full UUCP connectivity. DOS: Tom Dell's Waffle BBS shareware includes a Usenet news and UUCP mail system that runs under DOS. Jorge Cwik's shareware uucico implementation runs under DOS and works well with Waffle.
If doscmd will not suffice, the add-on utility emulators/pcemu emulates an 8088 and enough BIOS services to run many DOS text mode applications. It requires the X Window System.
Free Instrumentation Software FAQ and Technical Support
No is the short answer (sorry). Windmill 4.3 runs under Windows 3.1 and later (but not Windows XP). Windmill 6 (comDebug) runs under Windows 95 and later.
Digital Mars Frequently Asked Questions
No. Although the compiler will build 16 bit DOS programs, the compiler itself will only run under Win32. The dos extended versions of the tool executables are no longer included. Symantec does offer a freely downloadable set of compilers that run under DOS here. (This link appears to be broken.)
Corporate Frequently Asked Questions
Linux contains a highly advanced DOS emulator. It will run almost any 16 or 32 bit DOS application. It runs a great number of 32 bit DOS games as well. The DOS emulator package for Linux is called dosemu. It will typically run applications much faster than normal DOS because of Linux's faster file system access and system calls.

The F-CPU Project: FAQ
Maybe. We are planning to build in an x86 emulator in the F1 BIOS. But we only want to boot the CPU on standard x86 motherboards. We doubt the F1 will support sophisticated DOS games and other x86-specific packages.

FileVan (DOS) is intended for PCs running DOS and Windows 3.1. If long-file-name support is not needed, you may also use it on Windows 9x and ME. Due to the overlap above, you may use either program on Windows 9x and ME. In this situation, the Windows version is recommended because of it's far greater capability and use of system memory. And it's the same price! Generally, you should use the DOS program only on DOS and Windows 3.1 PCs.
