I do not see a way to write to a MS-DOS floppy via the "floppy disk 
operations" menu.  Am I missing something?

Does anyone have a program that allows one to write to a MS-DOS floppy?

As always, thanks in advance!

Does your Floppy window not have an entry called
"MSDOS Disk Write"?

That's what you use.  It will not allow you to
overwrite files that are already there, however,
which is something of an inconvenience if you 
are trying to update a file - esp since you have
no way of removing the file from the diskette
short of reformatting the diskette.  That I know
of, anyway.

Well...  I used Version 2 of the System V on the 7300 before and didn't
look in the manual for my machine which now runs Version 3.  The newer version
does indeed have a pop up window for reading and writing MS-DOS files.
Thanks...
