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 >> Well, I need to have all my DOS programs, and it's about 8 MB > > You should just include a cdrom driver to access the rest :-). > Options are: eltorito (if you boot with isolinux and memdisk > only), xcdrom (ide), gcdrom (sata), maybe others.

Why use eltorito driver? I have xcdrom and it works fine with memdisk, but you suggested eltorito, is it better? m4mach ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This SF.net email is sponsored by DB2 Express Download DB2 Express C - the FREE version of DB2 express and take control of your XML.
