The readme text that comes with the ntfs4dos19 plug-in says:

1) Add the program archive(s) to the UBCD ISO (e.g. /ubcd/dosapps/)
2) Amend the contents of UBCD.INI to /ubcd/dosapps/UBCD.INI
3) Amend the contents of custom.cfg to /ubcd/custom.cfg

but I found these instructions unclear, particularly because making a bootable USB flash drive appears to be a departure from the imagined procedure. After a long while searching through files in C:\ubcd-extracted\ubcd\ and on my bootable USB flash drive (I wasn't sure whether I was meant to modify ISO before or after making the bootable USB flash drive) I'm now pretty sure that before is the only way that would make sense, at least when making a CD). Could I propose some alterations that might make it clearer to others?

1) Create the following folder within the ISO (prior to writing to CD or USB): \ubcd\dosapps

2) Transfer the following files from ntfs4dos19.zip to \ubcd\dosapps

chkdskg.cab
dfrgntfs.cab
ntfs4dos.cab
ubcd.ini

3) Transfer the following file from ntfs4dos19.zip to \ubcd\custom

others.cfg


I'm not actually sure that that last instruction is correct because the original instruction says custom.cfg, not others.cfg.
