IIRC, the original info request did NOT say what he wanted to use it for.
MS-DOS 7.xx is nice, and would be the easiest to install, BUT it might not
necessarily be what he wants/needs.
For all that we know, maybe the DOS Command box of w2K might be all that
he needs!

I occasionally need to boot other versions of OS.  A FAT32 partition can't
be easily accessed by ANYTHING prior to 98SE.

If you strip out the parts that you don't need, (such as DONKEY.BAS?), you
can put the most needed items on one disk.
