Default A drive or B drive?

Hi, I've just downloaded SimEarth and when I go to install, I get a Dos prompt screen to install, but it asks me A drive or B drive? I've tried both of them and neither work. Thanks!

No -- is that my problem? The DOS prompt I get looks like the old DOS screens, tho.

If my advice does not work, try installing DOSBox and attempting it again.
