What is the difference between PC-DOS and MS-DOS? I created a start up
disk using Ghost 2003 and I was given the option between PC and
MS-Dos.

One of the major differences is that PC-DOS was produced by IBM, and MS-DOS
wasn't..

PC-DOS comes with GHOST, but is fairly a fairly old IBM product and may not
work on some modern PCs.

MS-DOS is a newer Microsoft product (not new, just newer than PC-DOS). It
has a better chance of working on modern PCs.

If you can not get GHOST to work from a bootdisk made with the PC-DOS
option, then you should try an the MS-DOS option. However, you will need to
provide a copy of MS-DOS. The easiest way to do this is to make a bootable
(DOS) floppy from within your version of windows. Even XP can do this. The
particular flavor of DOS that will result if you make a bootable floppy from
within XP is actually a variation of windows ME. If that does not work with
GHOST, get a win98SE floppy and try that. Images of win98 floppies are
available at www.bootdisk.com.

Not strictly true, Bob.. MS-DOS 7 beta was released during 1994 and duly
buried where IBM were still touting PC-DOS 7 during 1995 and maybe even
1996..
