I have have just tryed the latest DosBOX, with the img from DosBoxDex4u.zip and it works fine in win98, using this setup code http://www.dex4u.com/dosbox.htm
Image

NOTE: You must use that image as it got a specal floppy driver that works with emulators,
Also you need the latest dosbox for that vesa mode.

This DosBoxDex4u.zip works ok. I also find out why WinImage hangs when I try to load boot12.bin file. (Image->Boot sector properties -> Open). Problem was because bpb structure was not initialized. When I initialized this structure like this also this feature seems working.

Code:
bsOemName               DB      "BootProg"      ; 0x03
bpbBytesPerSector       dw      512             ;0x0B
bpbSectorsPerCluster    db      1               ; 0x0D
bpbReservedSectors      DW      1               ; 0x0E
bpbNumberOfFATs         DB      2               ; 0x10
bpbRootEntries          DW      224             ; 0x11
bpbTotalSectors         DW      2880            ; 0x13
bpbMedia                DB      0f0h            ; 0x15
bpbSectorsPerFAT        DW      9               ; 0x16
bpbSectorsPerTrack      DW      18              ; 0x18
bpbHeadsPerCylinder     DW      2               ; 0x1A
bpbHiddenSectors        DD      0               ; 0x1C
bpbTotalSectorsBig      DD      0               ; 0x20
bsDriveNumber           DB      0               ; 0x24
bsUnused                DB      0               ; 0x25
bsExtBootSignature      DB      029h            ; 0x26
bsSerialNumber          DD      102030h         ; 0x27
bsVolumeLabel           DB      "ALA MA KOTA"   ; 0x2B
bsFileSystem            DB      "FAT12   "      ; 0x36

Your English is very good, and you are right, but is more the fat12 that is differant.
In the run.inc we call this function
Code:
        call  DirFillRoot      

instead of this
Code:
        call  DirFillRootUSB     

This above work with USB key fob and real floppys, but not in emulators.
Here is the code:
http://www.dex4u.com/uploads/DexEmul.zip

Note: you will be much better off using all the code in the above zip, as its a slightly older ver and mixing may corse problems, you will still need to make shore gui.dex is on the floppy or in the image.
Hope this helps.

Yes that because, Dex4u is being reorganised, and will not be 100% compatable with the old Dex4u OS, so the new code will be released in about 2-3 weeks, if you still want the old code PM me and i send a link, that goes for anyone else.
