Hey Shawn, I'm interested in making a bare bones bootable USB DOS prompt tool for basic repairs and tests. However, if my memory serves me correctly Win98 does not support NTFS. So, if you have any NTFS partitions (as most of us do), they won't be viewable/accessible from a Win98 DOS prompt. Isn't that right? If so, is there some means of allowing access to NTFS partitions?
Ultimately if it's not feasible or would require too much tweaking, I guess I could always boot into command mode from a Windows 7 installation disk to get access. But the convenience of a durable USB drive is more appealing than a fragile CD/DVD.
Seems that by default Win98 does not support NTFS, but there's a program called "NTFS reader
" that enables you to access and manipulate files. But it uses a separate program executed from the command line, so you can't use other DOS commands through it.
