DOS Made Easy was
originally Published in 1996 by PHreAK Software. It was and still is, a straight
forward tutorial on DOS. It didnt try to degrade you like other tutorial
books with nonsense, it just put everything in common everyday terms.
Since the inception of DOS
Made Easy, DOS has become obsolete, atleast people think, by Windows
95, 98, 2000, NT and now ME. But DOS is still alive and living well in the
bottom of your OS, with the exception of Windows NT and ME. But Windows NT
and ME do have DOS emulation. We wont go into the technical details of why
DOS in still hidden on your computer, we want to keep things EASY for
Believe it or not there are
STILL computers out there that have DOS and Windows 3.0+ running on them!
The chances of you actually seeing one of these computers are very slim but
you might! The main reason for the republishing of this eBook is that you
may need to do some things in a DOS window or REAL DOS MODE. Some things
are still faster to do in DOS. For example:
When I want to sort file
types located in one directory into different directories I ALWAYS do it
in a DOS window using the move command.
This eBook covers DOS 6.1
some of the commands, like HELP, are not on the Window OSs but are on DOS
6.1. So if you try a command and you get the error "BAD COMMAND OR FILE NAME"
it just means that it isnt supported by your Windows version. Not a big deal.
The Great commands are STILL there! We left them all in so you will be able
to work in DOS on systems with DOS.
