FreeDOS FORMAT does support FAT32. I've recently used the latest FORMAT release (0.91r) to create a FAT32 file system so I can confirm it.



That's strange ... coz if I remember correctly, the help page that comes
up during the install process said that FreeDOS FORMAT doesn't do FAT32
yet. Which is why I cut short the installation process, went back to Win
XP, created my partition and formatted it there, and then came back to
the installation process.




you prolly don't want FreeDOS's bootcode to be installed on C: (since you'll have XP bootmanager or Win 98 on your C:) ... so be sure to answer "NO" to that question by the install program, and then manually do a "SYS D:" (or whatever is your drive letter) from the command prompt.


Perhaps the installer can give the user a chance to run SYS on a drive other than C: or at least tell him that he's about to do "SYS C:"?



I agree with that. More so, coz this is the part that messed up things
for me earlier. If I had known it was going to do "SYS C:" I would have
told it not to do so. Apart from that, I'll also suggest keeping a
backup copy of the current bootsector (before overwriting). But that is
already there in the next release I think ...
