btw: DOSLFN should be included into ALL packages! Nobody use DOS without long file name. And...including a file manager like DNOSP oder Necromancer DOS Navigator would be also good. These are things, DOS user are missing...
'Nobody uses' is quite a statement..
Lots of games/apps still run with 8.3.
For multimedia usage of DOS, you're correct: LFN is a 'must-have'.
A P100 or even 486 should be able to be used as a dedicated MP3 player.
Oh well, consider ReactOS project..though DOS may be more stable and less requirements (a bootable disk with MP3 player program, cd/network drivers and a DVD or network share full of MP3 files).
btw2: Many people want to use FreeDOS with USB-stick oder extern hard disc. There are drivers...not open source, but free. So...could you post a link on the about page (feature list) to http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm ?
There should be a 'Links' section on the FreeDOS page, similar to the 'FreeDOS for gamers' section. Then a separate Freedos webpage can point to your mentioned USB site, and interesting sites like:
The same for NTFS support. Could you post a link to http://www.datapol.de/dpd/prod/ntfs4dos/ ? So that people can easily find it!
I already contacted them for FreeDOS support in their Windows Bootdisk Builder. To my knowledge, the generated bootdisk is not perfect yet.
It would be easier if they would offer a FreeDOS based bootdisk image for download.
