uDOS (Users)

I have downloaded the ISO file for uDOS. Inside are a whole bunch of
ZIP files for what look to be LINUX ports. Looking inside the ISO with
IZARC it doesn't look to be bootable. Other than burning it to a CDDVD
what should I do?

Does anyone know what this is?

You mean this? Why?? What were you looking for?

You mean official DJGPP stuff (mostly GNU, e.g. awk, grep) from /current/ or /beta/?

"Can be run live from CD image."

Delete it, it's too old (2006). Everything on there is probably outdated. If it works for you, good. But otherwise it's probably more reliable to check a local DJGPP (or FreeDOS) mirror for updated stuff.

A very old, unsupported, defunct, highly experimental, unofficial distribution of FreeDOS + DJGPP stuff that nobody ever widely used.

Not worth messing with, most likely.

I burned the ISO but it was not bootable.

I downloaded the file just to see if it was something interesting but not.

I checked out the two links you provided and downloaded about a 1/4 of it.
Of that about 40% has a chance of being potentially useful to me. This
doesn't mean I will put it in my bootable system but at a minimum it will
be stored on a USB so I can go get it at a later date say I might need it
in the future.
