Instead of or with F5/8?

Now this last birthday, but the one before, my mom and one of her friends 
flooded me with eCards.  That was annoying.  :)


Okay.  Yesterday, I visited dosos.com (site for alternate OSes...Be, Linux, 
OS/2, Dr-DOS, FreeDOS, etc.  I went to Dr-DOS and FreeDOS's sites.  The comp 
froze, and I couldn't remember the Dr-DOS Site so I went back to FreeDOS's 
site.  In about 4 hours total, I had reformatted C: and D: (two physical 
hard drives) and got MSDOS on C: and FreeDOS on D:.  It's working perfectly 
(other than both drives being at 100% capacity?!?!?!??).  I even have my 
mini distro of Linux.  I used config.sys to create a startup menu, and it 
loads the one I want.  The only problem is the path.  I got FreeDOS to run 
D:\autoexec.bat and MSDOS to load C:\autoexec.bat.  However, I can't get 
FreeDOS to set more than one path, and it can't use ':' or '\'.  Anyone have 
any suggestions?

If I get that working, I just need to fix my mouse (haha) so I can get back 
to Calmira.  :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
