Cool. I've had a look at that Access/XX software, looks pretty usable as 
a kind of DOSSHELL / graphical user interface. I assume you'd mean 
adding this software to an installed FreeDOS, be it through the 
installation CD or simply afterwards?
Or are you intending a LiveCD environment with that GUI and programs on CD?

extract KERNEL.SYS and SYS.COM to either an installed FreeDOS, or look

Will do so tomorrow evening, need to iron out some bugs. The FreeDOS 1.1 
installer (4.01) is there but not entirely usable yet as it doesn't 
switch to target installation directory afterwards, preventing me from 
running the scripts to create working CONFIG.SYS/AUTOEXEC.BAT (those 
batchfile scripts are in SAMCFGX.ZIP package)
