them to see drives
larger than 8 MB.
I seriously, seriously doubt it's a virus (there's only
four known OS/2 viruses

Are you applying fixpacks to the system after you install
it? If you're not,
that's why everything is breaking. You should at least
apply Fixpak 15 to the

More than likely that
is the problem.
Log into my BBS, get into the file areas and go to the
main OS/2 file area
(it's area #53) and download IDEDASD.EXE. Put it into
its own directory and
run it (it's a DOS-based self-extracting ZIP file).
Follow the directions to
patch your boot disks.

Download it (it's big - about 21 MB). Unzip it into a
temp directory and
type INSTALL - it will install itself.
