Question DOS to 98

I work for a medical clinc that has a database that was written in Foxbase Plus. The hard drive that the database was on has filled up and we need to move it to another system. The hard drive by the way has DOS on it. I have a newer machine with 98, the backup discs for the database, but no copy of Foxbase Plus. Does anybody know how I might go about getting the database on the new system?

Maybe install their hard drive as a slave on your system? Since it is so old and using DOS there are really no easy answers to this question.

If you install the HDD as a slave you might be able to transfer the files over. But your best answer is to call Tech Support like Shawn said. They will give you the only sure fire way to do this.
