Hi Curtis,

if external commands are not found, then you
probably have to set PATH to point to those
directories where your external command exe
and com files are installed. As temporary
workaround, you can simply go to that drive
and directory - the current directory always
is implicit part of the path in DOS.

As you say you installed "full" FreeDOS, which
is a lot more than "base", you should have a
large number of available commands. Even "base"
already has so many basic tools that MS DOS
would have called that a "full" install.

Regards, Eric
