    FreeDOS

    * Added a FreeDOS environment runnable from cdrom (previously known as ODIN bootdisk)
    * Memtest86+ v1.40 has been updated on the bootdisk (option 1, then option 2)
    * Smart Boot Manager v3.7.1r1 has been added to bootdisk (option 1, then option 3) so you can boot from cd/dvd on any 386 or newer system. It also eliminates potential buggy BIOS influences on the FreeDOS kernel.
    * Installed FreeDOS configuration menu now so that the menu item with most available memory is the default choice.
    * FreeDOS cdrom is now quite self-contained, and can be used without the special bootdisk. (If you do want the special bootdisk, obtain the latest one!)
    * FreeDOS Kernel 2035-UNSTABLE (Bootdisk only, by Arkady, Lucho, Jeremy and others) This is an experimental branch of the FreeDOS kernel, for testing purposes only.
    * UDMA2 driver, the successor to the PCI IDE UDMA accelerator driver (UDMA2 by Jack R Ellis)
    * EMM386 and HIMEM version 1.13, now including experimental VDS support.
    * EDIT version 0.82, fixing several bugs
    * 8086 compatible CDEX component for cdrom drive(r)s on ancient x86 computer systems

    In Slax

    You can start the LiveCD from DOS prompt. Boot your DOS and type:

    X:
    CD \BOOT\DOS
    LINUX.BAT

    (replace X: by your CDROM drive letter)


    If you do not have DOS installed, or it is not able to access your CD,
    try to boot from a diskette. You can use FreeDos from http://www.freedos.org
    which has already a CD drivers included
