There are two methods you can use: SimpleCD is easier to set up, but CDStart gives more memory to use and requires a further reboot. SimpleCD is explained below, but if you want a little more memory see the CDStart Section

Note: This is for most ATAPI CDROM drives. If your CD-ROM doesn't load by the SimpleCD method, you will need to obtain the drivers from your manufacturer and make the necessary changes in your SimpleCD.bat file.

SimpleCD Method:

In an empty folder on your desktop, download Ctload.exe from Double-click the file to extract the files it contains. Copy/Paste to the PureDOS folder--the other downloaded files are not needed.

Download SimpleCD.exe here. This is a self-extracting archive and by default will place the file in the C:\Windows\Command folder. If Windows is installed in a directory other than C:\Windows, type the path to your Command folder.

Instructions for use:

Once you have run the PureDOS shortcut from the Start Menu and are at the DOS prompt, type in SimpleCD and press Enter. To return to Windows, type: WinMe  and press Enter.
