Like how do you run your ogo in DOS mode?

You can boot to DOS by Shift-ON-NEXT, which sends you to the Omngo boot
screen,which is really a hidden DOS prompt. Or- write a batch file as I did:

I wrote a geos.bat file:

b:
cd \
omniswp r
cd \geoworks
geos

and "put"* it into the Ogo directory "b:\".
Then, I rewrote the last lines of the Ogo's b:\autoexec.bat file to
read:

cd \
omniswp i
rem cd geoworks
rem geos

*"put" is a command under Omnicom.exe.
Omniswp.exe is a keyboard remap program (etc.) for DOS.

These and many other great programs can be obtained as freeware from
lots of sites. Here are some (not a complete list):
