Been doing quite a bit on floppy recently.
Latest work is a Minibox/naughty. © Nuno and Medevil .
A Dos floppy with music and text editor.
-Mp3 and Cd player with drivers
- (obviously) usb, ntfs and usb capabilities.
-edit of Dos
-a small gui /fm
Creating the floppy
-Hexeditor, only one fat, 10h rd entries.
Open the image in the hex editor, replace at 10h 11h with 0110.
And paste 0s the characters at 200h.
-Bootlace (grub4dos) the image.
-now, Double grub trick. Mount image, or open in Winimage, put grub.exe (not Grldr) in it, clo se.
Open in hex-editor. Find the root directory, copy the grub entry (grub exe etc, 2 lines) to the next line.
Edit grub exe to grldr ,and the bytes from143C (eg), to 00000000.
Close. Mount/Winimage the img, Admire the thing! (or ask Tinybit to have manual input Bootlace )
We are now ready for the dos /programs drivers.
I use Msdos7.1.
-usbaspi and di1000dd
-shsucdx and driver
Loaded by a config.sys (no autoexec)
Probably the part ubeen waiting for.
-VH.exe (or view.exe) Html viewer.
-CDRecord, cause that's what I needed.
-Qv, video player, but too big for here.
-Judas player. The (my) AC97 soundcard has not much support in Dos. Jp has.
-Juke, sb support
-mp3Tsr21, is, as the name says. Discovered it years ago. Based on mpg123.
-cdp.exe, tsr cd player.
A gui, find one you like, I have one, it's good. Dick's.
I like to have the Os and the progs in 2 separate images. Gzip 'em.
Grub can then launch each as fds or hds.
Modify internal menu for space.
