An MSDOS.SYS file for Booting into Winodws™ 95 After Booting to a DOS Prompt from a Floppy Disk

 

A few people under rare circumstances may need to change lines 3 through 5 ( if their Window's boot drive and directory are not C:\WINDOWS ). Also note that if you do *not* have a network card installed (no line that says "Network=1"), then the line "BootMenuDefault=6" should be set to a 5 instead of a 6.
Everything between the two 'dashed lines' below is part of the file (don't forget to remove the the dashes <grin> ):
