I don't know anything about DR-DOS, but that is what I have to use when I enter a setup CD.

I was wondering if anyone knows the command to start the setup in DR-DOS mode?

Thanks in advance

I seem to remember DRDOS as using most of the same commands that MSDOS used. you should be able to change directory to the root of the CD and run the install or setup executable file. If that does not work, boot the cd, and the installer should run automatically.

The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
