ANNOUNCE: DosLinux libc6 version

DosLinux is a relatively small distribution of the linux operating

This is not a umsdos version of linux, it's a loop version that
uses the standard linux 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\system\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.

If you're not sure if DosLinux will boot on your system get 'setup.exe' and
'image.exe' or 'imageapm.exe', try to boot the small loop linux system, if
it boots then get doslnx67.exe.

If you can't boot the small loop linux system there's no point getting

You need 'setup.exe' anyway to setup DosLinux, you don't have to get it
again any future versions of DosLinux will use the same 'setup.exe'.

Read HowTo.Install.DosLinux at the site below.

DosLinux runs on kernel 2.0.35.
DosLinux is a %100 libc6 system.
You need at least a 386 CPU and 8mb of memory to use DosLinux.
