I don't plan on having very many files available for download, but the ones I will have available, will be placed here.  Every file here has been scanned by Norton Anti-virus, and while I believe them to be totally virus free, I make no guarantee.  If you're paranoid, don't download anything from here!

Here is a MS-DOS 6.22 boot disk image with a generic CD-ROM driver.  This should provide real mode CD-ROM support for most IDE CD-ROMs.

This image can be used when formatting and re-installing MS-DOS 6.22, Win95, and Win95A.  Need more info about the different versions of Windows 95?  Click here .

NOTE: This image only provides FAT16 support.  If you want FAT32 support get the Win95B bootdisk image.  Need more info on FAT16 and FAT32?  Click here .

To use this image simply click here to download it, then just double-click it and follow the instructions.  It will ask you to put a new floppy disk into your floppy drive, then it will format the disk, and copy the bootdisk image to it.

When done, I suggest that you immediately test your new bootdisk to make sure it works properly and can read a CD.

NOTE:  If you have an anti-virus program running while you create your boot disk you *may* get a false alarm as the image recreates the master boot record (MBR) on the floppy disk.  This is normal.

Here is a Win95B boot disk image with a generic CD-ROM driver.  This should provide real mode CD-ROM support for most IDE CD-ROMs.

This image can be used when formatting and re-installing Win95B and later (including WinME).  Need more info about the different versions of Windows 95?  Click here .

This image provides FAT32 support.

To use this image simply click here to download it, then just double-click it and follow the instructions.  It will ask you to put a new floppy disk into your floppy drive, then it will format the disk, and copy the bootdisk image to it.

Here is a WinME Startup Disk image.  I have made no changes to it.  It provides CD-ROM support for most CD-ROMs.

This image can be used when formatting and re-installing WinME.  This image provides FAT32X support.

To use this image simply click here to download it, then just double-click it and follow the instructions.  It will ask you to put a new floppy disk into your floppy drive, then it will format the disk, and copy the Startup Disk image to it.

When done, I suggest that you immediately test your new Startup Disk to make sure it works properly and can read a CD.

NOTE:  If you have an anti-virus program running while you create your boot disk you *may* get a false alarm as the image recreates the master boot record (MBR) on the floppy disk.  This is normal.

NOTE: A WinME startup disk can NOT SYS (transfer the system files needed to boot) a hard drive or a floppy!
If you need or want this ability, I suggest using a Win95B bootdisk instead.  If you plan to use method ONE
on my WinME install page you will have to use a Win95B bootdisk!

Here is a modified WinME bootdisk image.  The only files on this image are:

These are the only files needed to make a floppy disk boot-able.  This image is for those of you that wish to make a customized bootdisk, or have need for a plain boot-able WinME floppy to run programs with...like a BIOS update and so on.

To use this image simply click here to download it, then just double-click it and follow the instructions.  It will ask you to put a new floppy disk into your floppy drive, then it will format the disk, and copy the bootdisk image to it.

Here is the new "TweakUI" From Microsoft!  It is for WinNT, Win2K, WinME, Win98 (any version), and Win95 (any version).  Here's what Microsoft has to say on the down load page:

Read Me First 
With the Tweak UI 1.33 update, you can adjust your Windows User Interface, including menu speed, window animation, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

The Microsoft® Windows® Shell Development Team has put together a set of productivity tools called PowerToys. If you're a Windows power-user, go ahead and try them out, but realize these are unsupported tools. Microsoft Technical Support is unable to answer questions about PowerToys.

System Requirements 
Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98 or Windows 95.

Tweak UI 1.33

If you don't know what TweakUI is or haven't used it before, please be aware that this is a geek tool!  If you use it, you may have problems (I don't, but I'm a geek).

Have you heard of Felix?  You know, the cat that people send via email?  Felix is a small program that creates a cat that wanders around on your 'puter screen.  It's a clean APP (just one file), The first time you double-click on it, it installs itself in c:\program files\ScreenMates.  If you want it to run on startup, simply right-click on Felix and choose "run on startup" If you ever want to get rid of Felix all you have to do is delete (make sure to uncheck "run on startup first") the folder you made.

On my 'puter Felix uses about 2% of CPU resources, and about 300K of memory.  It has not caused any problems with any other software I have.  Nor any conflicts with any running programs.  When you're working Felix stays out of your way too.  This is a cute, safe, and fun little free program.

Here's the website that makes Felix.  http://www.adtoolsinc.com/products/screenmates_frame.htm  They have some other ones as well.

Click me to download Felix.

Since I've gotten many requests, I've decided to make my Home Networking Part Two webpage available for easy download.  Of course, if you have a current version of Internet Explorer you can do the same simply by choosing File | Save As.  Please do not put this on another website!  You may freely give this PDF file to anyone who would like it.  NOTE: You may need to right-click on the icon and choose Save target as to download it instead of viewing it in your web browser.  Need the Adobe Acrobat reader?

Click me to download the webpage in a PDF file.
