Open Windows Explorer, find the file Msdos.sys. Click Alt-Enter, and remove the System, Hidden and Read-Only properties. Then edit the file with Notepad and change the line BootMenu=0 to BootMenu=1. Then change the properties back to what they were before, in the same way. This will open the F8 menu automatically whenever you start the computer.

     1.ms-dos
     2.windows95
not the F8 menu.

Edit the before mentioned MSDOS.SYS BootGui=0. Then in the beginning of the CONFIG.SYS -file

[menu]
menuitem=ms-dos
menutiem=windows95

[ms-dos]
ms-dos -mode devices etc.

[windows95]
win95-devices etc.

In autoexec.bat put line
GOTO %CONFIG%

:ms-dos
ms-dos-mode commands
c:\windows\dosstart.bat

:windows95
windows95 commands
win
