MS-DOS with PC/TCP

Using PC/TCP from FTP Software Inc., you can mount any of the CD-ROM diskettes directly on your PC. The CD-ROM diskette will appear as a new MS-DOS drive, for example g:

To use PC/TCP you must have a PC with direct Internet access, and you must purchase and install PC/TCP. For further information, contact:

FTP Software, Inc.
26 Princess Street
North Andover MA 01880-3004
voice: (617)-246-0900
fax: (617) 246-0901

Install and configure PC/TCP as described in the installation manual.

Your file c:\ PC/TCP directory \hosts must include the Internet IP numbers of the host computers where the CD-ROMs are mounted. Any future changes in those IP numbers will be reflected in this WWW file.

The contents and NFS locations of the CD-ROM diskettes are subject to frequent change.

In addition, the NFS location

	cedr.lbl.gov:/data9/old/parep2/menu

of the CD-ROM menu system is subject to change. Its current location is included in the document you are now reading.

To mount (for example) disk1, disk73, and disk181, type the following:

Note: the following NFS locations are no longer current. For present locations, consult NFS locations of CDROMs.

	idumnt g:
	idmnt CENSUS1 parep2.lbl.gov /export/cdrom/cd037 g: user nobody
	idumnt h:
	idmnt CENSUS2 sdp2.berkeley.edu /disk73 h: user nobody
	idumnt i:
	idmnt CENSUS3 bigsur.lbl.gov /export/cdrom/cd043 i: user nobody
	

Then you can access those three CD-ROM diskettes as MS-DOS drives g: and h: and i:

The same mechanism is used to mount the NFS file system which contains the CD-ROM menu system:

	idumnt e:
	idumnt f:
	idmnt CENSUS cedr.lbl.gov /data9/old/parep2/menu e: user nobody
	

Drive f: is reserved for use by the CD-ROM menu system.

By modifying your c:\autoexec.bat file, you can cause selected NFS file systems to be automatically mounted on selected drives, each time the PC is rebooted.

Your file c:\autoexec.bat must be modified (and the CD-ROMs remounted) whenever the NFS locations at the University of California are changed.

Please inform dwmerrill@lbl.gov if you wish to be notified additionally by electronic mail, of changes in NFS locations.
