the instructions for use are all on the page of the site, download the program to a suitable place, put a floppy in and 2 click the downloaded file, this will make a bootable floppy that you do a rstart and boot from, then perform the testd WARNING: ALL DATA WILL BE LOST WHEN PERFORMING THE LOW LEVEL FORMAT QUICK OR FULL OPTIONS SO IN YOUR CASE DON'T PERFORM THEM. You may have to go into the bios to change the boot order to make the order FD then CD then HD
