Hi people,

Does anyone know of any good free command-line system info tools, bootable, if possible. I have a few HDDs and sound cards I need to test and there's no way I'm installing any OS aside from a DOS.

Cheers,
Ben

Grab yourself a bootdisc from Bootdisk.com (http://www.bootdisk.com/), there's all sorts of different flavours and utilities.

Make a bootable floppy and add AIDA16 (http://www.aida32.hu/aida-download.php?bit=16)

Hmm........ I think the only way to test sound cards is to load the drivers and play a test file. Not so easy to do these days in dos. If you can load dos drivers then a dos cd player program could be one way to go. There are probably heaps of them on the Simtel site, but that site has been re-vamped and its now very difficult to browse through.
