Thank you so much ~ I added the files, rezip it as dosubcdhd.img.gz, copy it to /images/dosubcd.igz, but freedos still doesn't start up in UBCD. Is my way wrong? Without any additional files added in dosubcdhd.img, I zipped it and send it to /images/dosubcdhd.igz, freedos is still not bootable. Have...

Thanks again for your reply.

i ran the script but it complains about finding mkdosfs. I use SLAX. If you have an idea where mkdosfs is in SLAX, it will be super super helpful for me. Thank you!

Simply put, the PDK folder has syscfg.exe, which can change the BIOS configuration; and edidos.exe, which alters the OEM serial number.

But somehow I need to change the baud rate to 9600. I added a statement at the line of config.sys mode com1 baud=9600 parity=n data=8 stop=1 But the ...
