Good day, all:

I am working on the next version of a procedure to add
FreeDOS to almost any WindowsXP computer in a dual-boot
configuration and WITHOUT destroying the WindowsXP
installation.  When the computer boots, you can select
either WindowsXP or FreeDOS.

I'm using open source Linux tools to shrink the WindowsXP
NTFS partition.  I would like a couple of volunteers to
test the Version 2.0 Alpha procedure and provide
suggestions and corrections.

You should be comfortable with DOS commands and rebooting
your computer.  You do NOT need any Linux experience.

You will need a WindowsXP computer you would like to also
have FreeDOS installed on, a backup of any critical data
you have on that computer, a high-speed internet link,
and a CD burner.  A floppy disk drive will make this
easier, but is not necessary.

If you would like to dual-boot a new computer with FreeDOS,
and want to help test this, please send me an e-mail and
I'll send you the current draft of the procedure.  After a
few volunteers run through it, I'll get the updated procedure
posted on the web somewhere.
