SUMMARY: Sparc floppies and DOS

From: William F. Mitchell (

I received three immediate responses, with sufficient information in them that
I needn't wait for more replies. Thanks to:

I appreciate your time.

The short answer is: Get to 4.1.1 because it has built-in capability
to deal with DOS filesystems.

I had one response which recommended SoftPC and Sun's Dos Windows. These
go beyond my need to read/write files on a 3.5" floppy because they will
actually run DOS programs.

Thanks again you guys who responded.
