I've rescued a couple of old computers (both Core2Duo-based) from the storage room at work for use with my students. I'm a primary teacher: my students arew 7, 8 years old and don't believe you can use just a keyboard--no mouse--to achieve much of anything on a computer.
Anyway, I wanted to run DOS on them. Downloaded and burnt the *.iso for FreeDOS 1.1 and was able to successfully install it on the first machine. The second, tho', causes problems. When I go to install it it tells me it can't find the required package ... when it's up to installing kernelx. It asks if I wish to continue to the installation. The same error pops up for most of the 'base' aspects of the installer. If I continue installation FreeDOS, naturally, doesn't boot. It tells me there's no kernel. Any ideas?
Out of frustration and curiosity I tried installing FreeDOS 1.0. 1.0 installs and boots without a hitch but introduces another problem into the mix: it won't recognise the CD drive.
