Interestingly enough, I encountered a room full of Windows 98 machines at work yesterday. I had forgotten that "Reboot into MS-DOS" was an option in Shutdown.

Is ipconfig even in DOS? It's a totally useful command, especially when you can't get the ****ing wifi to connect...
Another command I like is powerconfig /lastwake, then it makes me mad when I see that WMC has woken my PC to get channel updates.

I'd make fun of DOS being old, but UNIX is like older and stuff.

Heh, trying to cram as much as possible into upper memory area. My big jump was going from 8MB to 16MB. Cost me over $90 for 8MB's
