DosLinux is a relatively small distribution of the linux operating

This is not a umsdos version of linux, it's a loop version it uses
the ext2 filesystem.

It can be installed on an existing dos system i.e. msdos, pcdos,
drdos, and win95/98 in dos mode.

There's no need to create a partition or repartition to install
doslinux, because it will just occupy a file i.e.
c:\doslinux\linux\doslinux.img on your existing dos system.

Read DosLinux.README for further info at the site below.

You'll need about 40 megabytes of free space on your dos system
to unpack doslinux.

DosLinux doesn't include X windows or the gcc compiler, but these
are easy to install on doslinux, just read /usr/doc/guides/ and gcc-doslinux after you install doslinux.

DosLinux has support for IDE & SCSI hard drives, Ethernet cards, IDE
& SCSI cdrom drives, Tcp/ip networking i.e. SLIP/PPP, Floppy drives,
Sound cards, Serial & non serial mice, Parallel printers, PNP support,
PCMCIA support, etc.

DosLinux runs on kernel 2.0.35.
DosLinux is a linux libc5 elf system.
You need at least a 386 CPU and 8mb of memory to use DosLinux.
