Hi. I just installed WIN2K on my mothers machine. The thing is that she uses a very old dos-program that uses Icelandic chatacters. But WIN2K command prompt doesn't support these characters at the moment and I have no idea how to configure the command prompt to do so. This program ran properly undin Win98 dos prompt and it is vital that I get it to work with win2k. Thanks in advance.

I'd suggest to install the Icelandic keyboard as an option. 'Control Panel'->'Keyboard'->'Input locales'->'Add' and click on Icelandic. You will be able to so select a key combination to switch to that keyboard. (I do that with my German version ..., it also works on the DOS prompt).

Good luck ...
