MS-DOS 6.2 MakeSys (included with the downloadable version of MS-DOS 6.2
Step-Up and run by SETUP.BAT) cannot find the MS-DOS 6.0 DBLSPACE.BIN file

This problem occurs when you have APPEND C:\DOS in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
To work around this problem, remove the APPEND command from your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file and restart your computer before running MakeSys.

SETUP.BAT), your original system files (IO.SYS, MSDOS.SYS, and
DBLSPACE.BIN) are overwritten. MakeSys places the updated system files
in the directory from which it is run. Running SETUP.BAT automatically
creates a STEPUP directory and run MakeSys from there, avoiding this
