I've got DOS 6.22 placed on a bootable cd. I've fdisked, created a partition of 2GB and formatted the C: drive. I then run setup.bat off the bootable disc. It begins the install process just fine and runs through the insert disk1 insert disk2 and insert disk3 steps. The STEPUP folder is created on the C: drive but at the end of the process of the DOS extraction I am prompted with:
"MakeSys has determined that your startup hard disk is drive C. Is that correct?" I hit Y.
Then is says "MakeSys is making temporary copies of your system files...
Copying file: C:\IO.SYS
Fatal error: Cannot read file.
The MakeSys utility could not be complete."

Any ideas on why this part is happening?
Thank you for any assistance.
