I was excited to see FreeDos V1.0 was out finally. I threw the CD in
and ran the install on a spare PC. The install was pretty nice. But
then it finished and I rebooted and got this message.


GRUB Loading Stage1.5...

GRUB Loading...
Error 17

 >From what I could find, Error 17 means GRUB found the boot partition
but doesn't recognize the filesystem. I first partitioned the entire
20GB drive as FAT32. So I tried creating a 1.5GB partition as FAT16.
Still nothing. I booted off the CD but couldn't find any GRUB config
files on the C drive. I suppose that's all stored on the boot sector.
Any idea what's going on? And more specifically, how to fix it?

I'm a little sad as I've had trouble with older FreeDOS installs that
used LILO. On an old PC I have, when booting it would get to "LI" and
then hang. I was hoping this wouldn't happen when the official V1.0
came out. I'm going to try to install it on that PC tonight. Maybe
I'll have better luck with that one.

Using Tomcat but need to do more? Need to support web services, security?
