Something needs to be done with the FreeDOS FAQ. It was originally set
up to collect frequently-asked questions about FreeDOS. These days,
general questions do get asked there, but it's more often used to
submit bugs and to ask for "I got a weird error" help.

#2912 is not a FAQ - it's someone asking a specific, non-general
question about a problem that isn't common (at least, it's the first
I'd seen this install problem since 1.0 was released in Sept 2006.)
These kinds of questions should be asked on freedos-user where the
user can get help.

It would be better to NOT allow users to ask new questions on the FAQ,
but only provide followup. An admin (Eric?) should be the one to enter
frequently-asked questions, with an initial followup/answer. And users
would be able to submit their own answers to add to it.
