i know that some 9x floppies was formatted as 1680 KB (80*21*2*512).
it easy can be reformatted as normal 80*18,. if usemore power soft, than included in 9x.

MERCURY127: so u need [re]FORMAT these (DMF) floppies (ie make it usual 1440 KB), or MODIFY it?

your words make me think more... the MKEYB works like a sharm.... so what i did:

1 - the UltraIso program can add more files on img(floppy image);

2 - i add the MKeyb DOS program with MKZIP.bat and the build.bat(these 2 bat's files, i don't know if they are needed). and no error on write the floppy image.

now the boot language is english, but at least, i can change the keyboard layout.

i can use the 98 boot instead the boot ME for format the computer ;) and the fdisk

thank you so much for all to all
