Part of the series: DOS

DOS is a general acronym for "Disk Operating System", though it came to refer to the operating system used in the IBM PC, particularly Microsoft's MS-DOS.

This tutorial is mostly about working with floppy disks, or diskettes, though we also mention the formatting of hard drives, which generally required the use of a floppy drive and diskette to accomplish.
