OSNews, Generic OSes 12 years after the project was conceived, and after a long period in which it was useable though incomplete, FreeDOS has reached version 1.0. The ISO is downloadable at SourceForge. Versions with more extras should be available soon, as should a mail-order option.

No, modern day MS Windows derivatives do not use these files. If you check your system, they probably have zero length...if not then you probably have a dual boot system with Win 98 (which does use them),

An XP boot disk needs to contain only the following files:


A:NTLDR
A:NTDETECT.COM
A:BOOT.INI
