Default DOS on memory pen....

If I copy CMD.exe onto a memory pen and then execute it on a PC that is on a network (can't really mess around with them/access CMD normally) would it run? And other files I need to copy over?

Thanks, Trif.

As far as I know CMD.exe is just a command line interpreter for Windows XP, not even real DOS. If you're trying to get a bootable flash drive then you'll either have to have a real version of DOS to make one out of or download **** Small Linux as they have a special flash drive version.
