As much as I hate to concede, I must. I have found a critical passage on the 
FreeDOS website which, in my eyes, discourages further experimentation:

“FreeDOS is a complete operating system. If you choose to install this on your 
computer, you may overwrite the operating system you have now (for example, 
Windows.) If this is not what you intend, please stop now.”

It seems, in making FreeDOS, the developers have decided to stay true to the 
original nature of the earliest days of DOS. 640KB was all the memory anyone 
ever needed, DOS liked to be the ONLY operating system on any given PC, and 
multi-booting wasn't even heard of.

Anyway, Dennis, although plugging a different SourceForge project, is 
essentially correct. DOSBox always played my games without problems, and, as 
the old adage goes, “If it ain't broke, don't fix it.”

So anyway, thus ends my brief and unsuccessful foray into FreeDOS.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a Temptress to kill. 😉
