If you are running MS-DOS 6.0 or 6.2 in a dual-boot configuration with
IBM OS/2 operating system version 2.0, you cannot access any
DoubleSpace volumes that are created while running MS-DOS. Also, if
the boot drive is compressed, the OS/2 dual-boot feature does not
work. Instead, you may receive the following error message:
SYS0019: The drive is currently write-protected.
OS/2 version 2.0 is unaware of the DoubleSpace system files and does
not load them during the OS/2 boot sequence. As a result, any data or
program files that are located in the DoubleSpace volume are not
accessible to the OS/2 operating system.
IBM OS/2 version 2.0 is manufactured by a vendor independent of
Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this
product's performance or reliability.
