contains a 'readme.usbkey' textdocument and a script (mkdiskimage) for initialising an USB Disk into 'ZIP geometry'.

if you want to boot FreeDOS from your USB key,
get several files from

the fdos1440.img contains a Syslinux configuration file (syslinux.cfg),
the MEMDISK program (to load a disk image into RAM and let it act as actual floppydisk) and FDBOOT.IMG (the FreeDOS diskette image file I use).

label freedos
kernel memdisk
append initrd=fdboot.img
