win98: scrolling command prompt

I'm working with this old win98 machine (don't ask :roll: ).

The DOS prompt window doesn't scroll

I thought I'd try to harness the collective wisdom of JavaRanch

I'm open to creative solutions to getting a scrollable dos prompt window - (except that I have to stay with win 98).

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I fired up the VM with 98se to see if I could figure it out. No luckm than I searched Google Groups to find this old discussion.

Thanks Eric -

Well scrollit is kind of a hack - not too bad, but not great...

Anyother ideas?

Thanks!

Everything you do in the dos window, pipe to a file.
