Hallo Tim,

after struggeling with several bootmanagers, I've found "xfdisk". It
is in german language (may be, that there is an english version,
too). Advantage: It works. Read the manual, start the program, use

URL: http://home.pages.de/~xfdisk/
or : http://www.geocities.com/xfdisk2001/index_de.html

I have two comps with win95/ms-dos 6.22/novelldos 7.0 (8 MB RAM) and
win95/ms-dos 6.22 (36 MB RAM). From DOS I can start windows3.x with
calmira (resp. New Deal Office for some month). So I could check,
which dos is better for windows. Finally it is not important, if I
use ms-dos or novelldos, but novelldos works better with
quarterdeck's emm-manager. 
I have three (or four) partitions, one for the booting of the os each
and one common with FAT16 for all os. There two networks: one for
win95/98 together with the laptop, and the other under novell netware
lite with a server-machine and a client. For testing only. This is
very old technology, but it works very fast and reliable. Netware
lite was a much better solution then the ms-networks.

I think, the theme is not so offtopic. 

Mit freundlichem Gruß / Regards / Saluton
