Hi Don,

two questions:

1. on the command line: can you find your menu.lst with
   configfile (<TAB>

   what is offered here?   cd, hd, fd?

   are you able to TAB to your config file and can you 
   load it?

2. in which emulation mode did you create the cd?
     no emulation
     floppy emulation
     hd emulation
