The rom is loaded (Turbo R emulation) but how do I start MSXDOS2?

Must I use some sort of command?

No you need the MSXDOS2 boot disk. The BIOS only provides command for software to use; such software is de MSXDOS2 system disk.

This is no different then the way you loaded the MSXDOS1 system disk; just another disk Wink

- MSXDOS22 is composed of a ROM and a disk system (with the files msxdos2.sys and command2.com)

So, in a MSX 2 or 2+ configuration, you must launch NLMSX with the DOS22 ROM in slot A and the DOS22 system disk in drive A

- If you use the Turbo-R configuration, the DOS 23 ROM is automatically included in the configuration, but you must also have in drive A a DOS23 system disk (with the specific DOS23 files msxdos2.sys and command2.com)

Ofcourse you can still use the Disk BASIC v2.1 commands:
_CHDIR("directory")
_CHDRV("drive:")
and uhm... lots of others I forgot ^^;

_MKDIR("directory")
_RMDIR("directory")
_RAMDISK(desired_size,var_to_return_the_actual_size_in)
_SYSTEM[("MSX-DOS command")]
FILES ["path"][,L]
and of course all disk commands can have a full or relative path now too.

Thanx people,
it works now. I thought I didn't need a system disk like MSX-DOS 1.x.
