I'm having problems with the dos-prompt. If I try running the program in the
(alternate) 16-bit dos emulator ----via Command.com ---Start | Run | type
Command.com <enter>, what do I have to do, when I'm done with the dos program
to reset the computer?

If I create shortcuts to the dos-app executable & then run it by clicking on
that shortcut, how is that done and do I have to reset anything after I'm
done?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Once your done, at the blinking cursor type Exit and press Enter. That's all!

In all reality though, you should run "cmd.exe" instead of "command.com" -
cmd.exe is a 32-bit command line interface that emulates 16-bit for 16-bit
programs, command.com on the other hand, is a 16-bit program, running a
16-bit interface, that loses much 32-bit error/interface functionality.
