    I have very old computer using Win 3.1.1 (I think a Pentium 1) that I am donating to Goodwill.  Will DBAN work with this computer using the created floppy disk in the drive on boot-up?  If not, can I use Win 3.1.1 or a DOS window to run off the floppy?  Many thanks.

      Yes, DBAN should run on a Pentium 1 computer if it has at least 8 megabytes of memory.

      No, but you can use the `eraserd.exe` program from the Heidi Eraser product with a DOS boot disk.
