You could always just put it into where the IE background is and set the background (when your in windows) to IE wallpaper...

i found the problem, it's that when i open the file, as:

Code: Select all

INPUT "Name:",filename$
OPEN filename$ FOR BINARY ACCESS READ AS #1
this deletes the data in the file, or creates a new one

you can get 2mb floppies i had one but to use them you need a bios that can support them, in the bios menu you can set the size of floppy disks supported

you can also get programs to format floppies to 2mb
