I made a Rescue CD with my collection of Dos utilities on it.
I used a Batch file menu but could not get it to work on the CD.
Turned out that the Widows98 Start floppy used to create the self booting CD, does not include "Choice.com".
I extracted the EDB.CAB file & copied in "Choice.com" from Windows\command, then recreated the CAB file & copied it to the Floppy.
I opened the file with "Winrar" but had to down load a small program called "cabpack.exe". Google found it.
I now have a self boot CD with all my utilities, run by a Menu.
The disc has Ghost 2001, PQMagic 6, Magic Boot Install, Magic Boot rescue
Pqboot & Xdos.
