I've been in an off-list discussion with Oscar, and now understand his
project is "clean". It is based on SEAL and Allego, and includes
Oscar's own contributions. The only mistake was including images from
Microsoft Windows. And Oscar has corrected that in a new archive file
that he sent me, so I will post that now to ibiblio so others may use
and enjoy it.

I hate having to ask these kinds of questions to people who eagerly
want to contribute to FreeDOS, but my most important job is protecting
the FreeDOS Project. So while I don't like doing it, I believe
stopping to ask these questions was the right thing to do.

I'd like to thank everyone on the list for being so understanding. Thanks!
