Hi,i just got a secondhand pc to mess with, can some one tell me how to get into dos with windows ME,there is no floppy drive onboard and no option to restart in dos on the shut down menu.

try start/run/command

restart your pc, when you get the beep, keep press F8 to get to the safe mode menu.

one of the choices is command prompt (or Dos prompt)

why no floppy drive?, it would be so easy to chuck in a start-up floppy and get to dos that way.

F1 or F2 at boot up usually takes you to DOS/Setup. Allegedly.
