How do you compare two flopy disk using W98 SE ?

I tried using diskcomp from DOS but got the essage 'wrong dos version*

An MS knowledgebase search turned up nothing

I dont think there is a way to compare floppies under Windows (may be wrong here).
Diskcomp is a DOS 6.22 and earlier program, and was dropped from DOS 7+, presumably because it couldnt handle long file names. Thats why you are getting a wrong version message.
I would be interested also to find out about this. I had a look in the Simtel Win95 diskutil directory but couldnt find a windows utility to do a diskcomp.
