    remember to remove the space from between the domain name and the .whatever.

    This server should have been booted from a Floppy and then the Install run from a CD and the only place you'll get the actual OS for it is Dell itself. You should be able to buy a Recovery Set from them if they are still available.

    There is also OpenDos (formerly Caldera DOS), and I think you might
    can find links to DrDOS 7.01. I've got an old DOS bud that uses it,
    here's a link to ask if he still has his download link

    Ask for GlennMcC...he probably has links to 7.02 and 7.03 as well.
    Or are those OpenDOS?? Anyway...they are based on the same
    DOS.
