I recently made some additions to FDIMPLES and the FreeDOS Installer Preview 
USB stick images.


So, starting with FDIMPLES 0.9.1, you can easily update what packages get 
installed with
both BASE and ALL on the distributed USB stick images. You can make additions 
removals to both package sets permanently to you USB stick. This would include 
that are not even on the shipped install media.

Simply add you package to an appropriate subdirectory under \FDSETUP\PACKAGES 
GAMES, UTIL or even a new directory like MYSTUFF.

You should boot the install media and quit to DOS.

Run “fdimples /config”

You can then locate your package and set it’s state to none, B or A (not 
BASE or BASE + ALL) by using the space/enter key. 

When finished making changes, select OK and the package lists for that USB stick
wil be updated.

If you wish, you can copy the packages LSM file to the \FDSETUP\PKGINFO as a 
file. But, this is not required. However, it does allow FDIMPLES to display the 
description information.
