Thanks for the reply!

I know about FreeDOS, yes, but I am not a big fan. I find it more interesting, and more fun, to use the authentic 1980s code. That is the retrocomputing angle.

I also hope to get some more interesting stuff running on top, such as DESQview, GEOS, DR-DOS Task Manager and so on, and I do not trust 100% compatibility in FreeDOS.

Secondly, bootable FreeDOS USB images already exist.

You appear to assume I am working on Windows. I am not.

Main dev platforms here are Ubuntu and Mac OS X. :-)
