Apple II DOS 3.2 Do's & Don'ts of DOS
This manual has two primary functions. The first is to teach you how to use the DOS (Disk Operating System): the Chapters of the manual use examples to accompany explanations of how the various DOS commands work. The second function of the manual is to serve as a reference guide to DOS.
The Appendices, Quick Reference Card, and the Indices (on pages 172, 178 and the inside back cover) were planned with this function in mind.
To use an Apple Disk II, you need an Apple II computer with at least 16K of memory — but 32K is recommended, since the 16K system allows little memory space to store programs. For using Apple Disk II with Applesoft BASIC on the firmware ROM card (Part A2B0009X) , your computer still requires only 16K of memory. For using Apple Disk II with Applesoft on cassette tape (Part A2T0004) or on diskette, your computer must have at least 32K of memory.
