Thanks for the response but something more fundamental is broken.

After trying to get it working for a couple of days I grabbed a dos img for
WinME from bootdisk.com, using exactly the same disk with the freedos setup
I added the boot to WinME option to the grub boot and voila all worked as it
should.  No errors during the boot and the c: mapped correctly to the 'rest'
of the memory stick.

So in summary......

Stick setup as my previous posting, grub has a freedos option and a WinME
option, both configured identically using the same files except the
FreeDos/WinmE img file.  Freedos option fails, WinME option works.

If you want me to to any diagnostics I'm happy to help, just tell me what
you need.
