SpartaDos 3.2d manual or help?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Well, I was finally able to track down a few floppies and test my drive - it may have a broken bezel, but it works great! (The drive looked a lot smaller in the picture..) I've loaded up one un-labeled disk and it states that it is Spartados 3.2d.

 

I've done a quick search online and I've not found a manual or much info on what commands to use. I've tried commands from a PDF that was Spartados 2.x and those don't seem to do anything.

 

Anyone have a PDF manual, or maybe just a few commands to get me started?

 

Thanks!

Most of the 3.x versions use similar commands. Look for FTe 3.2g. Therw should be a help file with it.

 

I am using my phone now, and I have no access to my files.

 

Google will help you.

Hmmmm - I found some info online about FTe 3.2g, but I've already tried DIR to get a directory listing and it says "ERROR DIR" and the drive never tries to access.. I'll try more later - thanks!

Are you at a READY prompt?

if so, you are in basic.

 

type DOS <enter> then you should see D1:

 

from there, type DIR.

Else when booting, Hold down OPTION key when turning on. This will disable basic.

Here's a error number list and commands summary. From Complete SpartaDOS Construction Set, about pages 70 to 85.

 

Also the 'Complete SpartDOS construction set for version 3.2d.
