Favourite OS
OS/2 Wrp 3.0
I'm currently refreshing my Win9x install cd-rom. It basically is a merge of the Win95/98SE/ME disks, with things removed, and other things added. For the most part, i retain the same directory structure, because some batch files expect this.

 \WIN95    win95 cd upgrade
 \WIN98    win98se upgrade
 \WIN9X   winME     we use this in MDGx 98se2me update proggie
 \WIN31   msdos 622 + win311 (both versions).  used to validate upgrades + dual boot
 \DOS71   revised MS-DOS 71 (different)
 \BIN       binary files
 \PATCHES   patches for 0950 + 2222 + 3000
 \COPYOVER  stuff to copy over
   ~\RUNME  programs to be run on install (eg DLL installers &c)
   ~\WINDIR  copy this into windows directory, also W2222 &c
   ~\PFILES   copy this into program files, also P2222 &c.

For the most part, a few extra things are added (PLUS95/98, RESKIT, alternate drivers, kernel toys and powertoys.

Most of it is set up to allow things to run that install things from other parts of the 95/98/ME disks.

I'm thinking of doing it as a custom OS.

A second disk is roughly layed out, corresponding to 95B + 98FE and an assortment of other things.
