Good day, all:

The FreeDOS beta 9 installer insists on writing a boot loader to
the C: drive.  The readme file at


Next, you will get the question if the bootsector code should be written.
-In case 1, answer no (as it would overwrite the bootsector code of your
 already installed operating system, thus making it not start anymore)
-In case 2, answer yes, or you will be unable to boot FreeDOS.

I'm not seeing this.  The installer just blasts the bootsector onto C:!

I'd like to install FreeDOS manually, copying the files to
D:\fdos\bin and doing a "SYS D:" to get around this problem. How can
I easily get the \fdos\bin directory created without also writing a
bootsector to C:?
