I had a lot of games like that, but I bought a new computer and didn't bother to copy them over. Oh well. Interestingly, while I'm willing to copy & delete in Windows, I always format my disks in DOS mode. Just something that's become a custom to me, and formatting in Windows seemsl ess intuitive than it is in DOS. -- Robert
