FreeDOS 1.0 full distro. The FDFULLCD cdrom contains the 65 source code packages of the BASE packages and 217 binary packages: If you want to read the source code of one of the 152 non-base packages, please download that separately (if available) instead of downloading the whole FDFULLWS
FreeDOS 1.0 full distro. The FDFULLCD cdrom contains 217 binary packages. It would be nice if it contained the (small) sources of the 65 BASE packages but it does not? You can get those in FDBASEWS or as one zip per package.
The only serious dependency inside the BASE cdroms is that some packages need cwsdpmi, but you will usually simply install all the packages in BASE anyway.
If you want to read the source code of one of the 152 non-base, please download that separately per package, if available, instead of downloading the whole FDFULLWS
Added lines 34-38:
Recommended packages are not automatically selected by the installer, you only get a message that it is recommended to install X when you select installing Y and an “&X” is found in the dependency list for Y.

If you want a smaller but almost complete install, avoid: OpenWatcom C/C++ (owatcom), XHarbour (xharbor), kraptor, doom, vi (vimrt/vim16/vim32), maybe FreePascal (fpascal)… Then you might even manage to install on less than 100 MB ;-)
