Yeah, you're right. But how can they extract the MS-DOS from Windows

I'm pretty sure you can extract DOS from Win95, 98, 98SE. First you get the manifest files that tell you which file is in which CAB (or just look), then you extract and expand the files you want from the CAB file, put them into a boot image and off it goes. However, none of them are as good as FreeDOS.

What I did was create four folders


then in each I got a compatible boot sector, then put the "DOS" files in there too; this means it's easy to build bootable images of any of these o/s at any time. Note also that if you are going to use MSCLIENT you have to be very careful to match HIMEM, EMM386 with IFSHLP.SYS. Note also that Dos622 is fussy about the actual sector locations of IO.SYS and MSDOS.SYS
