I think I'm clear on how to make a bootable USB flash drive using ffs.
Does anyone here know how to do this using the msdos filesystem?
newfs_msdos -B foo -F 32 /dev/rsd0e doesn't work.  "foo" == kernel.sys or, both from FreeDOS (

# newfs_msdos -B kernel.sys -F 32 /dev/rsd0e
newfs_msdos: kernel.sys: inappropriate file type or format
