Yes, you may be able to download the diagnostics for all systems from the Dell website, www.support.dell.com. However, the files are for fixing the diagnostics partition, or for extraction to a floppy, since the model you own is already old.

You may also visit this site: http://www.bay-wolf.com/downloads.htm ,which contains an ISO image of the diagsnostic. Just look for the file compatible with your system.

Depends if the latest one is backward compatible with the older ones.

I hope this helps !

I downloaded and extracted the ISo but after I burned it on the cd, its not bootable.  Is there something special I most do to make it bootable?  Or do I just burn the files I downloaded?

The ISO file you downloaded should make the cd bootable. If not, try another version.
