Installing a CD drive on DOS 6.22
« on: January 30, 2007, 05:52:53 AM »
Hi everyone.

I am new to DOS, and I just recently installed the OS on a old 1.2GB HDD I had lying around. But I would like to know how to install a CD drive onto my 6.22 version of DOS. I have some old DOS games (like the original Tomb Raider, The Elder Scrolls, ect.) that I would like to play on it, but they are all on CD. Also, will I need any sound card drivers as well? Thanks

No big deal.   I hope it was a pleasant trip.
