    There's no way to be sure from your listing if the ZIP file contains DOS or
    Windows software.

    When I wanted to update my motherboard's BIOS, I went to
    [url]http://www.bootdisk.com/[/url] and downloaded something that let me create a
    bootable DOS disk. They have a link to "Premade LINUX Bootdisks..." if
    that's what you need.

    If it's a Windows application, perhaps WINE will run it.

    Since it contains the file R1524SU-1.bmp, a graphics file, I would guess
    it's Windows software.

    Good idea. I had the same problem updating the BIOS of my motherboard.
    Had our next door neighbor make a Win98 boot disk.

    Another good idea.

    so I tried wine,
    ---------------
    [rootlocalhost recover]# wine upgrade.exe
    Could not stat /mnt/floppy (No such file or directory), ignoring drive
    A:
    err:module:import_dll Module (file) MFC42.DLL (which is needed by
    F:\tftp_win\release\recover\upgrade.exe) not found
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    that is actiontec dsl model r1524's upgrade file download from
    [url]www.qwest.com/dsl/customerservice/Actiontec1524.html[/url]
    if you are interest about it, you may download it there or ask
    actiontec or qwest.net give out win/dos source code or
    hardware/software specification which we can depend to write linux
    driver by ourselves.

    hope some winehq programers or user give more advice, thanks in
    advance, sincere eric

    I think you have to mount the floppy disk manually, before the Wine
    application tries to use it, or maybe the automounter, which I don't use,
    will do it. Before its mounted, you have to create the mount point and
    make sure the Wine configuration file maps A: to the mount point.

    Obviously, the request for MFC42.DLL means the executable file is a Windows
    application. I don't know where you can get the file; I copied mine from
    Windows 2000.
