A gentle introduction to FreeDOS

One question I get a lot from new users is "I've installed FreeDOS, but how do I use it?" I assume these people haven't used DOS for a long time, or maybe they haven't used DOS before. For the latter group, they might assume FreeDOS uses a command line like Linux. And certainly the DOS command line has a lot in common with Unix and Linux systems, but some of the assumptions are different.

So I wrote an article for OpenSource.com to provide a gentle introduction to FreeDOS. A version of that article will appear here on the FreeDOS blog in a few weeks.

This is meant as the first part in a short series of "how to use FreeDOS" articles that I plan to write. In this article, I talk about how to find your way around the DOS file system, using the CD and DIR commands. If you're new to FreeDOS, I recommend you read this article.
