It might very well be that the ROMs are fixed to their drive assignment on
the Attache. That's why assign.com
is not present. You can check this
...to see if you're copy is missing assign.com
for some reason.

I'm trying to copy files off my Otrona
Attache 8:16 using FastLynx 3.3,
but I keep getting an error 708 when trying to push SL.EXE to the Otrona
over the serial port. I am wondering if the reason for the error is that
the Otrona does not have a C: drive. Therefore, I would like to try to use
to assign C: to A:, but the Attache version of MS-DOS 2.11 does
not include Assign.com
. Does anyone have a copy of the MS-DOS 2.11 version
they can send me?
I already have the Otrona MS-DOS 2.11 disks from Don Maslin's archive, but (as I
forgot to mention), I do not have a modern computer with a 360KB floppy drive. I have an
old Dell Precision T3400, but its BIOS will only allow 1.2MB 5.25 floppies.
The version from the Maslin Archive and both my original Otrona MS-DOS 2.11d disks (from
1983) and the MS-DOS-2.11 2.11e disks that I downloaded from FAUG after Otrona went out of
business do not include Assign or Subst. However, the 2.11e disk includes support for a
hard drive, so I believe that it can handle a C: drive.
I received a copy of Assign from MS-DOS 2.1 from another list member, so I have asked him
if he can copy it to a floppy that I can send him.
