Default (free) Boot CD based on DOS and Rebel to play chess

Hello all

I need help to build an (maybe Free) Boot CD under DOS to play chess even on
a very old computer without hardisk

I already did one that work nice but i can only run Chess Genius 3 or Fritz
2.5

I get many problems with Rebel because i think (may be wrong i hope) :

- Rebel (or Rebel Decade) can not run under Free or Open DOS == only MSDOS
- Rebel need to write something on the disk on sub-directory BOOK and make
crash the program if not (because of CD)
- Sometime it's hang on fast computer when the program perfrom a test on
start about the computer speed

Is somebody already download the Rebel Century 4 (free download if you have
any Rebel Product) ?

please answer also to jmonscavoir @ wanadoo.fr (remove space)

Thanks

Jerome

You could try create a RAM-disk first, than copy & start the game from
there.

Not my own idea, got it from how an Win98 install-CD did it
