Okay, let's try this again. I'll let you know what happens as soon as I find it out.

The intention is that `make install` or `sudo make install` puts all files in the correct spot. By default that would be in /usr/local/libexec/dosemu.

dosemu-setupfreedos is called from dosemu-installfreedosuserspace which in turn is called from insfdusr.bat which is installed in /usr/local/share/dosemu2-extras/bat. The default configuration mounts that to f: and puts it in the path, also a message is printed that this command can be executed when all is in place.

dosemu-installfreedosuserspace will first trigger dosemu-downloaddos that downloads the set of zip files (you observed that it failed previously), those are put in a directory below ~/.cache/dosemu. Then it will call dosemu-setupfreedos which unpacks those zip files and creates a structure representing how FreeDOS was provided for dosemu 1.

You can call the individual scripts manually too, provide the -h argument to get info on how they work. Note that this is not typically needed. For instance the downloading is not repeated in case that was done previously.

I appreciate you're looking into this and are providing feedback. Thanks! Some of the design/structure is sub-optimal and will also be revisited over time.

 where should everything be living for dosemu-setupfreedos to work?
 I have freedos12 on the system and dosemu-setupfreedos doesn't find it.
 Also when inside dosemu where does dosemu find its batch files?
