You are certainly right re "Undocumented DOS" (not sure re DR-DOS itself). It would appear both will be earlier versions. As Andrew's Schulman's DOS books appear to have stopped at DR-DOS 6/MS-DOS 5. (Latest version from Jim is Sept 1997).

Fortunately after a little investigation I discovered Jim has very kindly made the Turbo C or BC++ source and assembler files for his DEVLOAD freely available via his site which also contains lots of other interesting stuff.

Concerning DEVLOAD, the files you will want are:

+ DEVLOD7.ZIP, (46,835 bytes) contains the latest version of DEVLOD from Undocumented DOS, 2nd Edition, updated to work with Windows 95's DOS version. It also contains extended discussion of a number of problems with the DEVLOD concept. Needs DVSUPORT.ZIP to compile.

+ DVSUPORT.ZIP, (8,708 bytes) provides UNDOCDOS.H and other support files required for compiling the DEVLOD program.

Jim Kyle's homepage + Jim Kyle's download page.

Me neither (always wanted a copy).
