Another incedent with FreeDos ...

I uncovered a PROBLEM a few years back ...

When I used FreeDOS on a desktop with an ATAPI LS-120 drive,
FreeDos failed to execute CONFIG.SYS or it's FreeDos counterpart.
Skipped right to AUTOEXEC. It left everything at the defaults.

I put in files=60. Didn't happen.
I put in xxxxx=60 expecting an error message. Didn't happen.

In both cases Microsoft DOS worked as expected.

My testing was more extensive but these two statements are sufficient.

I discussed this issue with them.
A big argument came to pass.
They told me my tests were invalid.

I voulintered to be thier test subject.

3 days passed.

Then they told me IF I WANTED THIS FIXED, I WOULD JUST HAVE TO FIX IT MYSELF.

Numerous thoughts then came into mind.

Is True Sory ...

Anyway ...
