    What do you mean by footprint? Memory? CPU? Storage? All? And why do you want to know so much about obsolete programs?

    I am talking about hard disk space.

    I am doing a OS paper at university and the question has been asked. Rather than reinstalling each OS to find this out, I thought I might be able to get some help on this forum.

    Yeah, I highly doubt anyone here would know that without googling it, which you can do just the same as us.

    This might help you with DOS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS-DOS
    If you need more info I can probably dig out my copies of dos 3.3 and 6.22 and manuals.
