Ahh cool, Arkady put me on the list, thanks dude :-)..
I just tried to make a bootable Dr. Dos using Bart's method:
But things didn't go very well (didn't even make an iso for me) :-).
I'm totally new to this freedos and other alternative dos stuff. I
need DOS so I can run Impulse Tracker and dos console emulators like
Kgen98. Running Impulse Tracker with VDMSound or DosBox is
impossible with an AMD K6-2 550 even with 512mb PC133 SDRAM. The
sound is choppy and running the win32 Genesis emulator Gens is bad in
XP aswell. VDM in XP is a joke. I like many others need pure dos
like on good old Win98.
I don't really want to install windows 98. It would be good just to
chuck in a CD when I need to use DOS and be able to read files from
NTFS and a FAT32 formatted USB Mass Storage Device. If you can have
this support with live linux CD's then I think having the same
support with a open src dos os is possible.
Will I be able to accomplish all this with the next freedos boot cd?
