have to admit I am not sure. this was the suggested format from Ubuntu for 
setting up a dos bootable partition and it works so i had not explored 
further. I have had my freedos installations booting from primary 
partitions. generally it has been a small first partition because 
freedos does fine with 1/2 a gig and on these huge modern drives it has 
been trivial for me to save a small 1/2 gig partition at the start of the 
drive when I am setting it up.
