If your CONFIG.SYS file contains a SHELL command with the /K switch,
which specifies a startup batch file in place of the AUTOEXEC.BAT
file, and you use the Interactive Boot option (F8) to start your
computer, you still receive the "Process AUTOEXEC.BAT (Y/N)?" prompt.
Regardless of the batch file you specify, you receive the "Process
AUTOEXEC.BAT (Y/N)?" prompt. If you respond no, your other batch file
is processed. If you respond yes, you are then prompted with the name
of your other batch file and given a choice to run it.
If you want to boot interactively but skip the batch file, choose yes
to the first prompt ("Process AUTOEXEC.BAT?") and no to the second
prompt (when prompted with the name of the alternative batch file).
