I can't speak to MSDOS 'cus I quit using _everything_ MS many, many years ago.

Here's how I made bootable 1GB USB flash drive in OpenDos v7.01

1) Boot to OpenDos v7.01
2) load the USB_DOS drivers that work on my machine with my USB flash drive
3) /s drive_letter of USB flash drive
4) copy all aditional files that I want on the flash drive.


Basically... no different than making a diskette bootable.


After-thought: The key of-course is finding the correct USB drivers
that work with your computer and your USB flash drive.
