Abstract. As an extension of a result in  about the semisimple case, left orders in the sense of Fountain and Gould in rings with local units, minimum condition for principal left ideals, and arbitrary radical are characterized by means of covering every finite subset of them by left orders in the classical sense in rings with identity and with minimum condition for principal left ideals.
