Hi,

Which command do I use to restore the partition from the resource CD?
The hdd is blank currently.

Tia,
Andrew.

    AFAIK, you can't. But you can run the programs, when needed,
    from the CD. Or you can just put them somewhere on your hard
    drive like any other utility program, and run them, AIUI, in a
    DOS window.

    [Someday, if/when I a) remember it and b) get a round tuit, I've
    got to check them out, try running them, see what they do, etc.]

    Thanks. I just wondered since we have them at work, and I wondered
    whether they could be restored like I used to do on old Compaqs.
