win2000 dos prompt

By chrish ·
Is there a way in Win2k to set the properties of the dos prompt to use MS-Dos mode or suggest MS-Dos mode as there is in 95/98. I am new to 2000 and I am having a problem running a Novell menu program from a 2000 workstation(works fine from all my 95/98 machines)If anyone knows if this is possible and how to do it please inform me

There is no such thing as "DOS mode" in Win2K. If you need to run a dos-based program that will not run from a shortcut, you will need to open the command prompt (as described in the previous answer) and run the program manually from there. Actually, I am not at all sure that a Novell menu will run under Win2K - even in a command prompt window - but you could try. Hope this helps!

"set the properties of the dos prompt..."

I think Chris already knows how to open a dos/command prompt. If you want to set the properties for the command prompt itself, I think you can only play with display settings (Rt-click title bar). If you are trying to edit the "environment" under which a Novell menu runs (or old dos apps, etc), then you can do this in the properties for the shortcut (memory settings and command line switches, eg.)

Hope this is what you meant...
