The syntax of the MSCDEX command is covered in most MS-DOS reference books.

What you realy need however, is a Windows 95 boot disk. The setup program on the CD will not run from a MS-DOS 6.X prompt.

If you need the boot disk files, go to www.bootdisk.com

This line should look something like this:

C:\DOS\MSCDEX /D:MSCD001

LH C:\DOS\MSCDEX /D:MSCD001

LOADHIGH /L:14429 \DOS\MSCDEX /D:MSCD001

Yes, in autoexec.bat, you should have one of the above lines (or very similar to it).

In config.sys, you should have one of the below lines:

DEVICE=C:\DRV\CDROMDRV.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:220
DEVICEHIGH=C:\DRV\CDROMDRV.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:220
DEVICEHIGH /L:14652 =C:\DRV\CDROMDRV.SYS /D:MSCD001
/P:220
