hi, i have a compaq presario m2000 with a cd drive, but no floppy. i assume i can't load dos 6.22 on it without a floppy. or is there a way to do it from cd? i also assume that a usb floppy won't work because dos won't have the usb drivers.

so can anyone help me?

I've successfully used the information provided here to load usb drivers for use with a dos system.

But a bootable CD rom could do it too, just make sure to have the appropriate CDROM/ATAPI drivers loaded so you can access it (Nero boot CD with floppy emulation works ok,)

Of course, there's the old
  1. format c: /s
and copy the files you need to an install dir and boot directly from the HD itself.
