Hi, as far as I know, only Windows-aware programs generally
notice it at all if you have LFN support active. Normally you
need a TSR like LFNDOS or DOSLFN to provide LFN support, but
there was a project to merge that into a special kernel at some
time. FreeCOM does not really do much with LFN.
Hi Imre, did you improve DOSFSCK again recently? I think you should
re-enable the FAT1x-for-FAT1x-kernels support again...

Hi, well, if your BIOS only has LBA28, it will tell you that the disk
would be at most 128 GB big. If it has LBA48, it will reach more, but
FreeDOS would be limited to 2 TB (2^32 sectors). An idea would be to
make the UDMA driver fully independent from BIOS limits: Then after
booting from the

some howto and an 8 MB harddisk image).
I have just bought a HP Pavilion Notebook Cel2.4/512/40GB with ATI IGP

Hi, you can download all of FreeDOS beta9rc4 on one ISO image,
or all of FreeDOS ODIN 0.6 as one 720k or 1440k floppy image in
a zip file together with the software to put the image onto a
real floppy. If this is still not what you want, we should put
all the files from the IMAGES into a ZIP file
you do not really want to know about VCPI :-). VCPI is a lowlevel
interface which allows to share protected mode among several hosts
(EMM386 is one, but our EMM386 does not allow sharing). If your
program is the only protected mode program, no VCPI is available.
