Microsoft MS-DOS 5 Upgrade SETUP.EXE identifies where your previous DOS
files were kept on your hard drive.
The Microsoft MS-DOS 5 Upgrade's Setup program searches the first active

If only one directory contains any of these files, that directory is used.
If the above files are split between multiple directories, a directory will
be chosen based upon the following criteria, in the following order:
