I need to install a cdrom and I only have DOS on the system.
In order to install Win95 I need to install the driver for CDROM which "torisan3.exe". How do I install the driver. I have already extracted it to the c: drive but I do not remember how I make it load. I know we have to edit config.sys/autoexec.bat but dont know what to put in those files. The driver files I extracted are ( cdvsd.vxd, torisan3.vxd, voltrack.vxd) I am using WD-4.3 GB IDE drive.

Kris,

   I gave you the RIGHT answer for a question that was worth 30 Points.  Why did you give me  a C for??  Was downloading the driver too much work for you?

Kris,

    From now on if you ask a question in Win98, I will refer the Experts to this question and your ungrateful attitude.  You insult me by giving me a C on a 30 point question in which i answered correctly.

Dear Dankh,

I did not know that giving an average will give you "C" plus I was not aware that it will hurt you this much, be a sport man! You are a cool dude. Thanks for your help and all the info. Next time if you answer my question i will make sure the you get excellent "A++". Happy, sorry about my reply in the morning.

dankh,
People come here for help to solve a problem.  They're not pre-occupied with points.
Is this an example of how much you want to help?

Ralph,

   I can easily make up for the points, Ralph.  But the C grade  to a right answer for a 30 point question (which nobody even made an attepmt at) is insulting, to say the least.  Sorry Charlie.
