I am building an MS-DOS machine at the moment and I was wondering where would I get it from. I looked on fleebay and it seems to be mostly in the states or be very over priced.

Also would Free DOS do the trick as well as MS DOS as I only wanted it to run games on my old system.

I have a full version of MS-DOS 5 here, complete with all of the manuals, but I suspect that the postage will be a killer as the whole package weighs a couple of pounds.

FreeDOS is a free DOS-compatible operating system that can be used to play games, run legacy software, or support embedded systems. FreeDOS is basically like the old MS-DOS, but better! For example, FreeDOS lets you access FAT32 file systems and use large disk support (LBA) a feature not available in MS-DOS, and only included in Windows 95 and newer.
