exactly what he said, but if you have ms-dos 6.22 or below, you need a fat16 partition. also, here are the files you need for it to work:
config.sys(loads drivers as well as video and other system info)
io.sys(has something to do with a link to the bios I think, not sure)
autoexec.bat(I think it can run without it, but is very useful to have it)
command.com(the most important system file, interprets commands and just about everything else)
you can get these basic files from http://www.allbootdisks.com/index.ph...er&filecatid=1
download it and install it to a disc and just copy all the files from the floppy into the root of the drive and make your own autoexec.bat if it isn't already on there
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
