Add a section in ubcd.bat
that looks for \ubcd\dosapps\extra\core\
(out of inspiration
) on the CD / USB thumb drive. This extra
folder can contain some extra zip files that must be extracted to the ramdrive but that can't be in the original freedos images due file size limitations.
Also add \ubcd\dosapps\extra\custom\
Make an install.bat file in this extra
folder, so that everyone can easily edit it and add something to it without editing files in the freedos image itself
- Place in all the NIC drivers (network card drivers) in a zip file in \ubcd\dosapps\extra\core\
. Ask in the ubcd.bat if the user want to install an NIC driver or not.
- Add 7z for dos, to \ubcd\dosapps\extra\core\
i(t is quite large (593.4 kb)).
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/pc-stu ... file/7zip/
If we let ubcd.bat search first for 7z for dos, we can compress all other programs in /ubcd/dosapps with 7z (small size than zip and cab files).
- The user can add an install.bat or a text file with config options to \ubcd\dosapps\extra\custom\
and can add for example: which keyboard layout he wants (so there is no need to edit the freedos image), that he want nfts access by default, ...
Edit the help script:
Remake it in the form of a menu (like the launch part of ubcd.bat
. When you select an option of the help menu let the user choose if he want to view the further help text or that he want to launch the program.
Add in every program folder of \ubcd\dosapps a help.txt
file, which contains the help text (you can copy the text from the isolinux menu config files. Maybe it is possible to add the help text to the startupl.bat
files to config.txt
(or another name with an txt extension) so you can just open it in an text editor without the need for right clicking and select Edit...
. The startup.bat
files are now already renamed when they are copied so it doesn't need the .bat extension.
