Hi! Note that this thread is about a PC-XT computer:
In FreeDOS, only the 32-bit DOSFSCK supports FAT32.
Our 16-bit CHKDSK does not. Yet only CHKDSK can run
on the old PC-XT, which interestingly has an ISA IDE
harddisk controller with LBA capable BIOS on it :-)
The FAT32-enabled CHKDSK of Win9x MS DOS 7.x would
probably not run on PC-XT hardware.
