A gentle introduction to FreeDOS

FreeDOS is an old operating system, but it is new to many people. New users often ask, "I installed FreeDOS, but how do I use it?" If you haven't used DOS before, the blinking C:\> DOS prompt can seem a little unfriendly. And maybe scary.

So I wrote a gentle introduction to FreeDOS for OpenSource.com. It offers just the basics: how to get around and how to look at files. But it's surprising how much you can do in FreeDOS just with CD (change director) and DIR (directory listing). Learn those two commands, and you can easily become a DOS master.
