Hi Kelvin,

OS/2 is not freeware or public domain so a link, or a copy of the OS/2 Boot CD, OS/2, or eComStation cannot be provided.
You might find a copy on eBay etc.

Cheers

Ian,  wasn't there a CDBoot that was used to create a bootable OS/2 CD which was later replaced by DaniBoot?  Maybe this is what Kelvin is looking for.  If it is it should be on hobbes.

If you mean CDBOOT (the program, used to make a bootable CD), it is at HOBBES:

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/cd/cd-r/cdboot2v200.zip

If you mean that you want a CD to install eComStation, NO, you need to BUY that.

Hi Ivan and Doug,

I though originally Kelvin might have ment CDBoot the program but I've removed two other posts were Kelvin is seeking ISO's of OS/2 Warp, Warp v4.52  Boot CD's.

He is posting from China so I'm working on the assumption that some education is required  ;)

Since Kelvin's flurry of posts shortly after joining (no claims to be a Google employee, ie, not standard bot), and conveying a sense of urgency in one removed post, Kelvin hasn't been back for 21 hours, at least not logged in.

Cheers
Ian

Hi Ian,

I thought that it might be something along those lines or that the person was trying to set up a clean id before spamming, hence my replies to see which way they would jump.

I do believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt, especially when it is obvious that English is not their native language.

Both loaddskf and savedskf are on Hobbes as well. IIRC, CDBoot is also there. Naturally, CDBoot is an utility for creating a bootable ISO from existing data, not the data itself.

I also keep the OS/2 v4 boot disks on os2site.com, these are/were all publically available from IBM so no problems with these. The OS/2 Boot CD has a lot more copyright material as well as more up to-date files than what I have on os2site.com, and they were never publicly released, so I cant publicly host them :(

Loaddsk and savedsk floppy diskette utilities simply create image files from FD's, or create FD's from image files, as you pointed out, from image files like the Warp3 boot diskette image on os2site.com, CDBoot is great for creating updated boot CD's but you still need the original OS/2 install/CD's etc as Radek pointed out.

If Kelvin is a real person I'm more than happy to help him with instructions on using those utilities etc, so I hope I haven't scared him off !  I give people the benefit but as I get older, my rope gets shorter :o)

Cheers
