Warning: ASUS motherboards and FreeDOS

Eric Auer writes about this warning for ASUS motherboard users:

Hi, I got a complaint about a broken FreeDOS installer on a CD-ROM that seems to be shipped with ASUS P4PE motherboards:

German / English

They do not mention FreeDOS on the homepage, but I found 1 or 2 other, similar, complaints about "some FreeDOS program which comes with the P4PE", so I think SOMEBODY is bundling FreeDOS with that motherboard.

So here the warning: The (old) installer does not seem to work, and it might break your Windows if you boot from that CD-ROM.

I have already mailed the German ASUS support to ask for an explanation - offering to provide them a WORKING FreeDOS installer...
