Both PPC and HPC CE users have available this software. I may have
mentioned this before but I keep on pondering buying PocketDOS for
running old DOS apps that I used in my earlier computing days. Is there
a webnsite on the web where I still could get WP51, and the many other
DOS apps of the 1980's? I thought that it might be fun to run all those
old DOS apps, but I still wonder if I can still get them on the net. I
also wrote some creative DOS menu prompt startup batch files that I'd
love to run again, and cannot on properly on a Windows 95 or later PC
due to the nature of DOS in these oses. My Batch file was written on a
3.11 machine in 1998.

If you are a experienced PocketDOS user I'd love to get some advice.

No WP51, but there are a bunch of games and other downloads still ;-)
at http://www.fresh-toast.com/Download.htm

Please be gentle, it was my 1st website (ohhh, over 5 years now) and
no maintenance since 2000 !

Cheers - Neil

Interesting, didn't know there's PocketDOS :)
Does that mean I can install Win3.1 on PPC?

It exists.

www.pocketdos.com

Windows 3.1? I have no idea.


John

PS- If you want a Windows like OS why not just get a handheld PC 2000
palmtop? It runs a OS very similiar to Windows 98 and probabl;y just as
powerful or more powerful than Windows 3.1 and 95.

Only for Nostalgia reason :)
Since Win3.1 was running on DOS I was thinking to install it on top of
PocketDOS.

Phuoc,

PocketDOS is gear for 80186 systems so the highest Windows version you could
run would be 3.0. 3.1 requires 80286.

When I purchased my h2215 last February I tried PocketDOS solely to run
Foxpro v2.6 (DOS), but although it installed okay Foxpro generated an error
when run. Being unable to reconcile this, I uninstalled it and am now using
DBFView, which allows me to view the DBF files but without the editing and
other functions available in Foxpro.

I'd like to run PocketDOS and Foxpro on the PPC, and would be willing to try
again if I could find a solution to this issue. Although I use DOS
frequently on the PC, I think its keyboard-intensive nature might make it a
problem on a PPC without an attached keyboard, especially something like WP5
that is very keyboard dependent.
