ok, not sure if i can actually post this here, if can't pls move it to were it should be posted.
soo, i made an usbpen with ubcdv5b12 using the tools on the cd itself. more specific the 'ubcd2usb' in the win32 folder on tools. works fine for almost everything, i was astonished, was expecting the worst case scenario - errors everywhere and nothing working.
my problem now is, i'm getting a stupid error on one of my current machines. whenever it loads 'fdubcd.igz' it ends after loading almost every necessary drivers and states the cdrom wasn't loaded and when it looks for the necessary .bat file (for example for cute partition manager - cpm.bat) stops and the program isn't loaded.

i can try and take a screen (pic) to post here.

Run:
Code:
drd

If it list B:\ as your USB drive, then this is a know problem.
The freedos image currently only scans from C: to Z: for the location of the necessary files.

Add "B" to bin\ubcd.bat in level3\autorun3.cab:
Code:
:_nobcdw
for %%i in (C D E F G H) do if "%cddrv%"=="" call %0 : _testdrv %%i:

to:
Code:
:_nobcdw
for %%i in (B C D E F G H) do if "%cddrv%"=="" call %0 : _testdrv %%i:

that will do the trick I think. Let me know if it works.

It should work on other machines too after this change.

Victor is working a the freedos image. I don't know much about dos.

For editing the igz files, rename them to .img.gz files.
Then you can edit them by mounting them with Virtual floppy drive (will make a fake floppy):

Or you can try a tool like WinImage.
