Yes, it is possible to use FDUPDATE to keep a 1.0 system up to date. However, 
you won't be able to use it to go from 1.0 to 1.1, as the 1.1 distro will use 
slightly modified packages.

Repositories for 1.0 and 1.1 will be different, too (1.0 will still get its 
update from http://www.viste-family.net/mateusz/fdupdate/, while 1.1 update 
server doesn't have an official URL yet).

FDUPDATE doesn't know what system it is running on, so it's up to you to use 
the right version (well, I may add a check of the version, if anyone would be 
able to tell me how to distinguish in a reliable way a 1.0 install from a 1.1 
For FreeDOS v1.0 use FDUDPATE v0.54
For FreeDOS v1.1 use FDUPDATE v0.55 (not officially released yet)
