How would I go about to rebuild MSETUP.EXE after modifications?
Can this be done with FASM or do I need another program? Question

create a diskimga with a program like winimage and use the program located here: http://www.menuetos.org/appl/mdisk.exe to rebuild msetup.exe

Warning!

Mdisk can't create a dos-executable!
But the installer created with it will check for a fat32 C: drive and ask if a -dummy- MSETUP.EXE file should be created on it (to use with hd booting)

MSETUP.EXE was written in PASCAL, the source code used to be on the menuetos.org site...

It's a bit more complicated than must running mdisk.

I'll be putting up some new s/w for creating the .exe file soon. I wasn't planning on documenting it, but will do if there is interest.

Thank you all
I spent to much time learning new WinAPI's, documented and undocumented, that I neglected the stuff that makes things work.
I would appreciate lots of comments, as I' m not up to snuff on Dos and booting.

I thought I'd never look at Dos again. One could easely see it that way with Windows blinders and MS views.
