My system is a Pentium 133 with Win95, SB16, CDRom*6, Diamond S3 PCI 2Mo and 24 Mo RAM. A few weeks ago, the system crashed and I had to reinstall MS Dos 6.22 and Win 95. But in the startup menu (by pressing  F8) I can't have the option : Old Version of MS-Dos. What could I do to have this choice again ?

You have to edit your msdos.sys file to include the line :
BootMulti=1
insert in at the end of the list already there.

that should enable you to start MSDOS622 by hitting f4 key when screen showing staring win95 comes. if you hit f8 at that screen, your previous operating system should now be a choice on the menu.
