Hello all.
I have started a project to access my HSI with a DOS based notebook. It is a Hitachi Mx133t running DOS 6.22. Pentium 133Mhz with 32 Mb RAM and a 1Gb HD. It has an onboard NIC, but is not detected by DOS MSD. Is there a DOS based program like Everest or Belarc?

While I'm here I have a couple of other questions. I have not used DOS since about '97 [windows lazy) so I have some I need a little refresher.

Other than individual program how do I edit the IRQ assignments? I have a NIC but cannot install it for lask of IRQs. The computer has assigned or restricted asssignnment of the IRQs. It shows IRQ 5 assigned to LPT2 but I have no second Printer port. It also will not allow me to disable the serial ports. Any advice.

Hello, Acklan:

The NIC info may be reported in the system bios, along with the resource assignments. I was doing a little research on the Ultimate Boot CD's website - http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ - to see what was included on the CD, and it listed Astra.
It may be useful with your issue.

ASTRA - Advanced Sysinfo Tool and Reporting Assistant. This program performs computer configuration analysis and diagnostics. It gives detailed information about your computer hardware and devices operational modes, including undocumented information. A unique quick HDD Health Status checker is included. It provides information on CPU, motherboard, hard disks, S.M.A.R.T., CD/DVD devices, SCSI devices, memory modules, chipset, BIOS, PCI/AGP, ISA/PnP and PnP devices, monitor, video card, sound card, network card, printer, etc. This program also creates a report file in plain text, INI, HTML and XML format, and is able to run in batch mode. The DOS version is especially designed for system restore purposes and may be used by repair professionals.

Platform: DOS, MS Windows 95/98/ME.

Haven't tried it myself, but it looks like something that will help.

Spot on! Perfect. I was able to run it from command line or DOSSHELL. Great tool. Should be added to a DOS ONLY place in the recommended applications.
Thank you JoshuaCat. Hopefully i can have it up nd running with this information.
I'll keep you posted. Man I am rusty with DOS.

Like I don't have enough to do. I found an old 133 and I want to use the old programs to surf the net and get some email. I forgot how much of a beast DOS was.
