Changed lines 2-6 from:

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

to:

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.

Changed lines 42-45 from:
  • cdrtool cwsdpmi (cdrecord and related MEDIA tools)
  • cdrtool &dfl &zisofs &aspi
  • dfl cdrtool (file linker UTIL for cdrecord)
  • fprot wattcp (fprot antivirus UTIL)
to:
  • fprot wattcp (fprot antivirus UTIL, big download)
Changed line 45 from:
  • usbdos wget (usb DRIVER)
to:
  • usbdos wget (usb DRIVER, device detection can be very slow)
Added lines 48-54:

Those only RECOMMEND packages which require internet during install:

  • cdrtool cwsdpmi (cdrecord and related MEDIA tools)
  • cdrtool &dfl &zisofs &aspi
  • dfl cdrtool (file linker UTIL for cdrecord)
Added line 58:
  • crynwr (the network packet DRIVER(s), card detection can be slow)
Changed line 68 from:
  • wattcp &cwsdpmi &crynwr
to:
  • wattcp &cwsdpmi &crynwr (network, detection can be slow)
Changed lines 103-107 from:
to:

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 ;-)
