ramdisk help

Anything mirrored by or for FreeDOS is hosted on iBiblio.org under /pub/micro/pc-stuff/freedos/files/. So, for future reference, that's where you should probably look first.

Off the top of my head, there are at least four RAM drivers:



There is also an old Dr. Dobbs article (circa 1990) by Marcus Johnson: Writing MS-DOS Device Drivers
