1) There are two problems with option label dos for loading FreeDos balder.img. There is no memdisk file in /boot/isolinux folder and the isolinux.cfg sintax is wrong

The correct syntax is


KERNEL /boot/isolinux/memdisk

APPEND initrd=/boot/isolinux/balder.img

2) KNOPPIX incorrectly guesses that my serial mouse uses the "Microsoft" protocol, with the result that my mouse pointer hops around almost at random. It works correctly if I edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf replacing the mouse protocol "Microsoft" with "MouseSystems" or "auto". Since the "auto" protocol would presumably work with a "Microsoft" mouse, too, that would seem to be a better default for KNOPPIX to use.
