FTFY.

And yes, I do not recommend using RxDOS yet. The upcoming RxDOS 7.24 will still lack many features. Stable versions are planned for RxDOS 7.30 and later. At this pace, that can still take a long time.

Its bitbucket page https://bitbucket.org/ecm/rxdos-7.2x has binaries to download, but anyone using RxDOS currently should be able to assemble it themselves. A simple build script [for bash on unixoids] is provided. Only NASM is needed nowadays, optionally hg can be used to embed a revision ID into the files. I'd recommend that, seeing as RxDOS is mainly under the copyleft of the GPL v2+, so must be distributed with sources.
