This procedure creates a floppy disk you can use to boot your computer to \
ensure that enough memory is available to run this game.

This procedure will read your current configuration, which may involve \
searching your hard disk to find needed files. Then it will format a floppy \
disk in drive A:, and create appropriate AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files on \
the floppy disk.

Not all systems support this procedure, but trying it can do no harm.
The boot disk was created successfully.

Please label the disk in drive %c: "Sierra Boot Disk".

To use the disk to make sure you have enough memory to run the game, make sure \
the disk is in floppy drive %c:, close the door to the floppy drive, then \
press the Control, Alt and Del keys simultaneously to reboot your computer.
Because you are using SHARE, you should reboot without using the boot disk \
after playing the game
Boot disk was not created

Reading your current configuration--please wait

This game requires %dK of extended memory and your machine does not have enough.
Can't make boot disk since you're not using COMMAND.COM

Searching hard disk for boot disk files--please wait

Can't find %s--unable to make boot disk
Please put a blank disk in drive %c:

This disk must be the same density as the drive. For example, if the drive is \
a 1.2M drive you must use a 1.2M disk; a 360K disk won't work.

Checking floppy disk--please wait

Please close door to drive %c:
Drive does not appear to be a floppy drive
Please replace Install disk in drive %c: with an empty disk

Reading floppy disk--please wait

Error reading floppy drive
WARNING! These files were found on the disk in drive %c:
Use cursor keys to view list. Is it OK to erase these files? (Y/N)
We will now use the DOS FORMAT program to format the disk in drive %c:. \
Please follow the directions on the next screen.
When DOS asks you to insert new diskette for drive %c:, just leave the current
disk in the drive and press ENTER. Do not remove the disk.
When DOS asks you for a volume label, just press ENTER.
When DOS asks you if you want to format another disk, type 'n' and press ENTER.


Checking results of format--please wait

Format was apparently unsuccessful

Writing boot disk files--please wait

This game requires DOS version %d.%02d or higher

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
