This is not related to your problem, unless your drive C: (atypically) is  
a logical partition. Primary partitions should work just fine. The  
mentioned tweaking is meant for developers.

Make sure the file KERNEL.SYS exists in C:\. Update to kernel 2038 or 2039  
(from the FreeDOS mirrors) and use the updated version of SYS in there to  
install that kernel. If that doesn't make it work, try using the SYS  
option to force the access method to LBA or CHS. You can also try the  
option that will hard code a BIOS drive number (usually 80(h) is the right  
for hard disks) into the boot sector instead of relying on the BIOS to  
provide the correct one.


What happens now with your Lotus Notes apps - do you make another costly 
upgrade, or settle for being marooned without product support? Time to move
off Lotus Notes and onto the cloud with Force.com, apps are easier to build,
use, and manage than apps on traditional platforms. Sign up for the Lotus
