Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Favourite OS
Anything checked :P
Whilst looking through the old compaq softpaqs on HP's ftp, I came across this.

Here's the readme (converted into UTF-8 from shift-JIS for easier viewing on modern systems), and the floppy image (converted to standard .img from custom QRST compressed format): http://lucasm.cf/?mdu2n

This is the first set of Compaq DOS 5.0/V-related binaries I have so far come across.

Hopefully someone will find and image the actual OS eventually.

Here's some screenshots of the setup:

and one of FDISK (ja-JP FDISK), and FDISK2 (en-US FDISK):

The provided QBASIC does not seem to work, at least on 86box's Number Nine 9FX S3 Trio64 emulation. (it doesn't draw properly to the screen, so you get a black screen)

On advice from Battler, I tried EDIT.COM in US mode and it worked.
