I wrote an online updater for FreeDOS. It's purpose is to download an index 
file from the FreeDOS Update server, and compare the list of packages which 
are on the server whith the packages installed on the system. If it find 
any "remote" package with a different version than the local one, it will 
propose to update it.
The whole program isn't finished yet (v0.50), but is working fine. It have a 
pre-configured update URL pointing 
to "http://mateusz.viste.free.fr/fdupdate";, that's where I am storing the 
newest freedos packages (the url may changes later to something 
more "official").

FDUPDATE requires the following packages:
FDPKG (installed by default with FreeDOS)
WGETX (may be downloaded at http://mateusz.viste.free.fr/fdupdate/wgetx.zip)

The FreeDOS updater itself may be downloaded from:
Bin: http://mateusz.viste.free.fr/dos/fdupdatx.zip
Src: http://mateusz.viste.free.fr/dos/fdupdats.zip

Obviously, you need a packet driver and a working internet connection to use 

Any comments are welcome!
