I would like to run Seal on top of freeDOS from read only files system. I tried to put it on cd but whenever i booted from cd, freeDOS recognises s2a-bin as s2a_bin. It can start and shudown properly but nothing else can be done. It's perfectly working from hard disk.
I'm living in area where power fluctuation causes damage to hard disk. So i would prefer to play games, hear music and complete my assignments from such a nice cd.

Thanking you for reading me.
and understanding my personal favour of english .

been suggested before by a number of people including myself, i think we need to team up with the freeDOS bootable CD guys on this one if they want to help.

Hi
It may work but it may be a little bit tricky (not tested):

- create a bootable dosdisc; image for it should be the latest freedos fdd image (user rawwrite to write to disc)

- create a folder on your hdd called 'iso-stuff'

- delete all (not really required stuff on the disk) and copy a open license cd-rom driver, and a ram-disc driver on the disc.

- include the cd-rom driver into your autoexec.bat / config.sys and mount the cd-rom as drive Y:\ (for example) and the ramdisc driver with a size of 16mb and the drive letter U:\ for it.

- create a folder on your harddrive and use the 'subst' cmd to give it the label U:\

- install seal to U:\

- use freezip to pack all data in U:\ to a archive called seal.zip

- copy seal.zip to the iso-stuff folder

- copy unzip to the iso-stuff folder

- copy some tools and other stuff you may need into the iso-stuff folder

- include the cmd 'unzip Y:\seal.zip U:\' after the cd-rom and ramdisc cmd's into your autoexec.bat file

- include the exec call for the seal binary from U:\ at last line of autoexec.bat

- burn the cd : if u dont know how take a look here http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/ and use the iso-stuff folder as iso1660 data, the disc as boot image.

- reboot your pc and find out what happend.

- may be work.

The alternative Chance for you may be something like this :
