The issue is that you boot an MSDOS/Win98 bootdisk,
with the FreeDOS format program on it.
For best reference, start with a blank disk, use the FDISK provided by Windows/DOS,
then run format c:
after that, load XMS-manager,
and run SCANDISK C:


and you *will* find errors, even in 0.91p (updated version).

below is A:\FORMAT C: /D > A:\OUTPUT.TXT , on MSDOS7.10
1GB harddisk, btw.

Eric, can you disable the " FAT32 root directory: pre-allocating 4 clusters (less fragmentation)." ???
I'll try in Bochs.
