Sorry guys, that I denied this topic, but this sounds somewhat strange 
to me, since I was able to successfully install FreeDOS 1.0, (the full 
Blair distribution), without a Internet connection at all.

I admit that the post install script, starts complaining about a NIC and 
keeps on searching for a DHCP "handshake", but you can simply deny that.

I even changed my 3COM Etherlink III ISA NIC for a Realtec based PCI NIC 
later and was able to set it up without a glitch, using Georg Potthast's 


Don't worry, just stay cool, since as far as I concern, FreeDOS/OpenGEM 
  simply works great. My advice is, if the installer starts complaining, 
just ignore it.

And no, I'm not one of the coders, just an ordinary (l)user ;-)
