MS-DOS explained  -  BP341  -  6.99

One of over 70 books by Phil Oliver and Noel Kantaris, published by Bernard Babani (publishing) Ltd. Suitable for beginners and intermediate users.

If you have a PC and want to get the most out of it in terms of efficiency and productivity, then you must learn the intricacies of its operating system. With the help of this book, you will learn to do just that in the shortest and most effective way. The book covers all versions of DOS from 6 to 7.

The book explains:

  • How the DOS operating system is structured so that you understand what happens when you first switch on your computer.

  • How directories and subdirectories can be employed to structure your hard disc for maximum efficiency.

  • How to manage disc files and how to use the MS-DOS Editor to fully configure your system by writing your own CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files.

  • How to optimise your system by either increasing its conventional memory manually or automatically with the use of the MemMaker, or in-creasing its speed.

  • How to write batch files to automate the operation of your system, and how to write and implement multiple configurations.

  • How to use the Microsoft Utilities, such as DoubleSpace, MsBackup, Undelete, and Anti-Virus.

  • How to resurrect MS-DOS 7 which is buried under Windows 95.
