Please belive me I'm an ordinary user not developer and don't have a time 
(and head:)) for searching bugs especially when it works. When it works I'm 
happy enough and don't want to know why it didn't work yesterday :). If you 
want I can send you my floppy image, unfortunatelly I don't have a copy of 
the "non-working" one. My HIMEM/EMM386 versions: 3.26/2.26, jemm version 
564, kernel: 1.1.35

I use CD-ROM drivers, but don't know how to add programs from CD directory 
to PATH variable. (to search for CD label?)

Why use eltorito driver? I have xcdrom and it works fine with memdisk, but 
you suggested eltorito, is it better?
