    And I've been using the 70% drug store stuff for over thirty years. I wish someone had clued me in. :-)

    When you try to load DOS 5 do you get as far as a DOS prompt? IF so, does that mean that your config.sys and autoexec.bat files have been correctly executed? So the problem arises when you try to...

    That's not what OP said in his post. One drive is working (A: ) and the other isn't (B: ). A swap doesn't disable one of the drives. Bad guess. :-)

    FWIW, there is no vice-verse for 'swap A:...

    Seriously?

    I run DOS 5.0 and 6.22 on mine.

    There's no need to install it. Just boot it from a floppy. :-)
