As I got several nice comments about FDUPDATE, I worked on it that night, and 
released a new version few minutes ago.
FDUPDATE v0.51 features a "new software install" mode, which you can use to 
install new packages on your FreeDOS system. It uses the same server than for 
updates, but instead of generating a list of newer packages, i generate a 
list of packages which aren't present on the local system.
For example, if you would like to install FoxCalc (the FreeDOS calculator), 
you have just to type "FDUPDATE /NEW", select "FoxCalc" in the list and press 
enter. :-)

Of course, if you're already using FDUPDATE, it will automatically upgrade 
itself ;-)

Reminder: To use FDUPDATE, you have to install the wgetx package first! You 
can grab wgetx at http://mateusz.viste.free.fr/fdupdate/wgetx.zip
