Good morning,

I currently have an iso of Helix (uses knoppix) and I'm trying to modify the grub menu to add an option for booting to a DOS environment. I have all the DOS boot files in the iso however whenever I boot the cd, grub returns an "Error 15," file not found. Unfortunately it doesn't specify which file(s). Here's the only modification I've made to grub, and it's in the menu.lst file:

I added:

title  Asset Delete & PDWipe
root   (cd)/boot/pdwipe/
kernel (cd)/boot/pdwipe/COMMAND.COM
chainloader  (cd)/boot/pdwipe/MSDOS.SYS
chainloader  (cd)/boot/pdwipe/IO.SYS

I'm pretty sure this is wrong, but I've not found a single resource that explains how to do exactly what I'm doing. I've also attached the menu.lst file as a whole if that helps. I greatly appreciate anyone's help with this.

Unless someone has another trick to boot DOS like this the most similar thing to what you want to is to get a DOS image disk with the programs you want to.

Get memdisk as a kernel and put your floppy as a initrd.

title my floppy img
kernel (cd)/boot/memdisk
initrd (cd)/boot/myfloppy.img

You can get memdisk image inside the super grub disk cds if you want to.
