Without installing DOS x.x, I know of no way to get to my root directory to follow the instructions. Also, I grew up on DOS 5.0, and don't necessarily recognize these DOS commands in the article. For instance, is [cd\deltree/y temp] a compound command? To me, in 5.0, [cd] means "change directory"; [deltree], I assume, is the same as the old [del *.*/s]; and I have no idea what the "Y" switch is. Also, I would have expected this temp folder would be located at c:\windows\temp, but the way I read the article, he's pointing to c:\temp. A temp folder on the root directory just doesn't sound right to me.
If I have to install DOS to do this, does it matter what version I use? Maybe I can download a copy. After I write this, I'll search for it. I know I have a DOS prompt command from inside Windows, but I suspect it won't let me do this.
Am I just babbling, or can anyone point me in the right direction?
