If you have installation set of MS-DOS 6.2, 6.21 or 6.22(3 disks), put first into computer and restart it. If you have only system disk MS-DOS 6.2x, you can boot your computer from this floppy and execute from MS-DOS prompt sys C: to make your hard drive bootable, but you need also other MS-DOS files, I can post them to you. Bootable floppy you can find at www.bootdisk.com

Why do you need to install it? Are you trying to load a O/S do you just need dos on a computer? If you just need dos, boot with the first disk and partition and format. Reboot and follow the directions. If you are trying to load a operating system like 95,98 or other there is a easyer way to this. Like boot to a 95 boot disk, partition, format with the /s /u. Then boot to a 98 boot disk and go to the cd drive letter, and type setup.

Hello there,

I need a little more details, What exactly do you want. It is just to install MS-DOS 6.x? or do you want to install something else.
If you want to wipe out and install only DOS 6.x. This is what you have to do:
.- There is a site www.bootdisk.com, here you can download the correct MS-DOS you may need.
It is important to know what do you want to do with because depending on it you should have to choose between your download files.
Let me explain it better. If you want to useNovell or Windows NT 4.0 after installing MS-DOS then you'll have to use FAT16 partitions, for Windows 95b, Windows 98 or Windows 2K you should download the boot disk with FAT32 partition option.
.- Once you download and expand the correct file, then you have to boot with this floppy you just created, then you have to type FDISK, after reboot you have to type format c: /s /u /v

then you can go from there ...

If you have any problems just e-mail me back
