Introduction
------------

The disk provided with this application note contains DOSSWAP.EXE, a
replacement for the DOSSWAP.EXE file that is included with MS-DOS
version 5.0. The replacement file corrects a problem in the original
DOSSWAP.EXE file that caused the task swapper in MS-DOS Shell to fail
when attempting to swap out of some programs.

Replacing DOSSWAP.EXE
---------------------

1. Insert the enclosed "Replacement DOSSWAP.EXE for MS-DOS 5.0" disk
in floppy disk drive A.

2. At the DOS prompt, type the following command and press ENTER

copy a:\dosswap.exe

where is the drive and directory where your MS-DOS
files are located. For example, if your MS-DOS files are located in
the DOS directory on drive C, type the following command:

copy a:\dosswap.exe c:\dos

Note: If you are copying DOSSWAP.EXE from a drive other than A,
substitute the appropriate drive letter for "a" in the above
command.

3. A message will be displayed stating: "1 file(s) copied." This
indicates your DOSSWAP.EXE file has been successfully replaced.
