I get this message when trying run sbminst from a MS-
DOS 6.20 floppy:

Load error: no DPMI - Get csdpmi*b.zip

I was able to load Smart BootManager on my laptop (a
Dell Latitude C600) but I am getting this on my co-
workers laptop (a Dell Latitude C800).

Thanks for any help!

    Please download a cwsdpmi.exe file
    (http://btmgr.gnuchina.org/cwsdpmi.exe), and put it and
    sbminst.exe into the same directory.

    Users should not have to go hunting around for
    supplementary files that were never provided in the
    download for the product. Why does sbminst.exe need to
    access extended memory? The 68KB sbminst.exe program
    can't manage to run in the first 640KB of physical
    memory? Why does it need to run in protected mode,
    especially when using a *DOS* bootable floppy and nothing
    of Windows (any version)? Looks more like the compile for
    the .exe got screwed up.
