Switches, parameters, and/or command line settings do not exist to force
the Windows & MS-DOS 5 for IBM PS/2 Setup program to install only Windows
3.1 or MS-DOS 5. However, there are methods to do this.
To Install MS-DOS 5 Only
To install MS-DOS 5 only, cancel the Windows installation by pressing F3
twice when you are prompted for the Windows 3.1 directory.
To Install Windows 3.1 Only
If you have already installed MS-DOS 5 and want to install or reinstall
only Windows 3.1, run the Microsoft Windows and MS-DOS 5 for IBM PS/2 Setup
program again. It detects that MS-DOS 5 is already installed and installs
only Microsoft Windows 3.1.
