How cool is this email post, and hiding out in the world of DOS.
Perhaps you can put this bootdisk stuff onto a CD disk.
Or perhaps, if you have some courage, jump into the world of Windows
with both feet, get the radsafety source code, buy a Fortran or other
compiler (sold by Intel???) and compile and load the software.
Whatever works for you...
PS there's some sort of reactor operator job at Oak Ridge (ORNL)...

For old DOS programs, you can also get DOS bootdisk images from
and then boot your machine straight into DOS (harder to do now that floppy
drives are rare). I used this technique to run some old DOS-based radio
programming software at my previous job (Motorola and Kenwood). I kept an
older laptop with a 3.5 floppy for just this purpose. Haven't had to do it
in many years though. I got out of the radio programming tasks in 2005.
On a newer laptop I guess could set up a multi-boot menu and have the DOS
image as one choice.
