There is nothing more frustrating (after having spent $7000 on
an IBM PC/XT and then an additional $50 on chess software) than
to get home and have to fool with a floppy when there is a perfectly
good fixed disk which is 10 times as fast and quieter to boot (pun
intended).

Therefore the following information is provided which will enable
XT owners to transfer Sargon III to fixed disk:

(assuming the sargon disk is in drive a, and default drive is c)

copy a:sargon.III sargon3.com (original sargon3.com is NOT copied)

debug
n sargon3.com
l
a 7f9f
mov ah,10

a 83e1
mov ah,2

w
q

Copy b000.bok from floppy to fixed disk. (b000.bok contains the book
openings)

None of the other files are required and should NOT be copied to fixed
disk.

Sargon should function normally, except that unfortunately when Sargon
exits, Sargon reboots the system. (Couldn't find an easy change for that
one)

Note: This information is being provided to allow registered Sargon III
owners to transfer a single copy of Sargon to a fixed disk. It is
not intended for any other use.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
