/If you are just browsing packages. It is far better to look at the package “group” pages. Like the Utilities Group page,/


Agreed, it is easier, at least, for me it was.That is what I used, I didn't even know about the complete listing when I browsed the group listings.:)

Those are some FreeDOS kernel version numbers. The current version is 2042.

Got it, thanx.

That's basically what I  did.'Fraid I don't even know what "JEMM" is.

Thanx for the link, I D/Led JEMM. It sounds great!

There are software development and programing language packages available. They are some of the tools that can be used to create DOS software.

Never heard of such, well, maybe vaguely.Makes sense now, though.The only programming I ever done in DOS was with bat files.

It may not have locked-up, the progress bar can stop for several minutes.

Oops, although I did wait several minutes & I may have neglected to look at the disk activity LED, I still may should've waited longer??? I didn't know the backup process was prone to long periods of seemingly inactivity…

The standard backup process in normal mode uses several xcopy and copy commands. There many different things that could cause an issue during the process.

Agreed, but I wouldn't think that just copy and xcopy would cause a lock-up, though

cat is generally used to send the contents of a file (or device) to stdout.

Good to know.But, why mention such in a FreeDOS environment? Seems like I remember seeing it in Linux???

There is some support for USB devices in the util/usbdos packages. But, I’ve never messed with it and don’t know what things it supports.

Got it, hopefully there will be something that I can use.

Thanx for all the help & useful links!
