IIRC: you have to boot from a diskette. Too lazy to look.
I belonged to a computer club back then (89'ish?) and we volunteered to Beta test. Had 10 volunteers. Some had both 3.5 and 5.25 diskette drives. It never occurred to IBM that the A drive might not be 3.5.
The first hard drive I bought was $300+ for 120 MEG! The biggest they sold. That computer came with a whopping 40 meg. My first system had 10 meg. Never filled it up.
So, were those "the good old days"? No virii, no spam, no Internet, no CP, no OG! We actually had to RTFM.

There is never enough time to do it right, but there is enough time to do it over.
