They may be going through more trouble than they have to.  If I get
what is being done here correctly, there probably ought to be a space
between /Z: and C:\DOS71\CP437UNI.TBL, and the : following Z may be
out of place.


The /Z switch specifies a code page to support, and the following parm
is where to find it.  Code page 437 is the standard IBM-PC code page,
and is probably the default, so it may not be necessary to specify it
at all.

I load FreeDOS's LFN support here as "installhigh=c:\dev\doslfn.com "
and things work.  (I put such things in a \dev directory, because I
like a Unix-like directory structure.
