I forgot what you had tyed in your previous message. You said:
"The needed line
would be something like:
mount E E:\ f\ -t cdrom -usecd 2 -apsi
where you put the correct drive letter for your system."
I see what you mean, though when you sent me that message it was just
the day after I had posted my first message, and I hadn't gotten to the
point of understanding that I had to mount the cdrom drive as well as
the hard drive. So I didn't really didn't know what you meant by the
above letters, and never noticed that the f\ was in there by mistake.
Your example was correct,
if the f\ was not there, and the usecd 2 was usecd 0 .Everything else
was correct except I don't need to put in the "-usecd " part.

I have everything working anyway, but I am curious to know why isn't c,
the drive letter in dosbox (for my hard drive?) - I know my cdrom drive
is f:\ so what is d for?
