    No not really. If you make a Nortons boot disk (cd or floppy) it boots up into IBM DOS. The winblows add-on still makes the pcs that Nortons is on boot up in IBM DOS. It just makes it easier for people who can't/won't make floppy boot disk.

    I'll use the method above and after that I'll give the Nortons a test on a spare drive to see if any damage happens.

    The mfs backup/restore is the perfect way to transfer from a 30GB to a 250GB. The commands setup a 127MB swap (using -s 127) which will work just fine on a 250GB drive.

    Thanks for that thomson. Unfortunatly I was too impatient,I reimaged the drive and went through guided setup again. I'll file it away for future reference.
