Well, I have a test PC with FreeDOS, in which I have tested Breadbox Ensemble
4.01. Ensemble with Etherodi ran flawlessly for me. This test PC have been
set a side, but it should be intact. I use it mainly to make FreeDOS bootdisks
for certain tasks. I can, most probably, easily recover the GEOS.INI from
that. I will check tomorrow and email the GEOS.INI to you, and I will also
check what freedos version along with the version of Himem manager. What
I recall the EMM386 does not work with Ensemble. Ensemble should be configured
for Himem.sys, but in the beta 8 there was two different himem managers.
I can't remember which one who worked. You have also to put up FreeDOS as
a 16 bit system. But I will check tomorrow, maybe I can put some time in
it and update with the recent version of FreeDOS and Breadbox Ensemble
