I downloaded a file called "yourbody.dcm"  
After discomming the file a file appeared called YOUR_BOD.Y and
my DOS 2.5 won't read it allthough it will read another file
which came out of discomming.  This other file is called Universe.
Does this need a special DOS to run?  If so, what type of DOS is
needed.  Note the line in the middle of YOUR_BOD.Y
which is probably causing it to be unreadable.
Thanks in advance.

**** Answered by Michael Current, aa700:

Bob Puff's Disk Communicator is used to transfer entire (boot) disk images
as files.  When you un-diskcomm a .dcm file, the resulting files may not
necessarily be readable by DOS, but you probably have created a copy of the
original (boot) disk.

If I were you I would try just booting from the disk with the YOUR_BOD.Y
file on it, best bet without BASIC enabled.

Hope this helps!
