Hi guys! New to this.


Before I forget, I think I speak for a lot of people that it would be nice if there is a proper documentation for installing FreeDOS on the second partition of a hard drive.  I've mananged to do it but I'm not really sure it was done correctly.

I sort of took some tips here:
but I also had to use the beta version of EasyBCD (which is EasyBCD 2.3) as it has FreeDOS among its list of Windows operating systems.

Now to my FreeDOS problems. 

1.  When I boot into FreeDOS, it almost always asks me to enter the date and time.  Is this normal?

2.  I can run an old Clipper program but the program has to be in the same drive/partition as FreeDOS; I cannot access other drive/partition when I'm in FreeDOS.  Is this normal?

3.  When I'm using the Clipper program, I can print just fine.  But I cannot enter data.  I get the DOS ERROR 4, something like that.  When running the Clipper program in command prompt in Windows 7 and I get the DOS ERROR 4, all I have to do is edit the autoexec.nt and config.nt in windows\system32.
By the way, I installed FreeDOS on the second partition in which I assigned the letter D: .  I used the TEXTINST.EXE which is in FREEDOS\SETUP\INSTALL to install.
Upon running TEXTINST.EXE , I typed \FREEDOS\PACKAGES as the source, and D:\FDOS as the target or destination.  Is this the right way to do it?
Thank you so much for your time.  I hope you don't mind a small donation as I'm not rich.
