I have an Apple IIe and no ProDOS bootable disks. I have lots of self-booting disks that have some dumb educational game on them, but I want to boot to ProDOS and use Apple BASIC: how can I do so?

If you have a Super Serial Card in your IIe and a way to boot DOS 3.3, you could set up a NULL modem connection, transfer ADT, and use ADT to transfer ProDOS and DOS 3.3 disk images you get from the net to diskettes on your IIe.

(If you don't have DOS 3.3, you would transfer it first-- see http://apple2.org.za/gswv/a2zine/Sel/dos33dmp.htm .)

Info on this stuff is in the FAQs at ...

Or, you could email me. I usually charge $5-$10 for mailing a few Dos 3.3 and ProDOS system and utility disks.
