This may be a complete application failure. MS-DOS fdisk works in 
FreeDOS before and after the ASPI driver is loaded. FreeDOS fdisk and 
xfdisk fail when running from MS-DOS.  However I can't mount the scsi 
drives in FreeDOS (I had formatted them in MS-DOS) is this still 
application or kernel or both?
