Please note that FreeDOS has a huge disadvantages.
- Cannot be built by any GPLed compiler, which is why, AFAIK,
dosemu is still in debian contrib. It is not "free" by the debian
- Is not compatible with Win3.1, while dosemu is declared to
be compatible with it.
So FreeDOS should be suggested with care.

I simply have a DOS partition dated ~1993, when FreeDOS
didn't even exist, and I use dosemu to boot from that.
So the FreeDOS users should correct me if some of the
points above are no longer valid.
