It's been a few years since I have actively used SUBST. The very few
times in recent memory that I tried under FreeDOS, it sadly just
didn't work, too buggy. I don't know why. (Kernel regression? PEBKAC?)

Unfortunately, there is no current maintainer, and it's dated back to
2002. So I don't know who to point you to for better help.

Try re-reading this, just to make sure you know the usage details:

Although I haven't used it, SRDISK ("UTIL") contains a SRDUMMY.SYS
device driver for its own purposes, meant to use up drive letters to
get the desired letter as next freely available. So you could maybe
try that:
