Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can find a wide variety of FREE downloadable boot disks <a href=”http://www.devedia.com/dosghost/dos/dos_vers.asp”>here</a> then you can use <a href=”http://www.computerhope.com/msdos.htm”>This page</a> to determine what commands to use for the information you are seeking. The <b><i>chkdsk</i></b> command would probably be a good place to start. You can also check <a href=”http://www.allbootdisks.com/dos.html”>here</a> for boot disks.
Good Luck!

    Working on old equipment is a chalange. I suggest you look into UBCD http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ as it will boot from CD and has many useful utilities including AIDA16. You can also create a bootable floppy and place AIDA16 on it and you can download it from http://soft.softoogle.com/ap/aida16-download-1910.shtml If you are more in to trying new things, here is a project site that may be of interest http://rule-project.org/?q=node/4 Let us know if you need additional suggestions. ~dmw
