I'm second guessing the cardbus, pcmcia, firewire, laptop dock and LS-120 updates. In fact a lot of them feel specific, anyone have any suggestions to narrow them down?

They were the only ones I noticed. Are there instructions for this too m I plan on building a Pentium mmx system this afternoon and I might use this.

Yup, look at the initial github link in the first post: https://github.com/rishooty/Q9xS

For the most part you just drop the updates folder and iso anywhere you want, then point the application to them. I recommend you don't put the iso in the same directory as the application, as it will be overwritten otherwise.

man this looks great, sign me the bleep up :D i'll test it this weekend. looks like a solid patch with mostly only updates that matter for compatibility and stability and nothing else which is all that matters to me.

Note that update packs are nothing more than extracted system files, so you can combine them if you like. For example, you can mix it with MS Security Update 2004. Just make sure you compare the files to properly overwrite or keep the latest version.

Dunno if this is beyond the scope of this utility but below is a thread on a minimal install of 95 for gaming:

It is beyond the scope and isn't at the same time.

See, if you run it again it will detect both if your files are already extracted and if there are any new updates. It won't bother reupdating or editing layout.inf unless you say so. This gives you a chance to just modify the extracted files yourself and generate a new iso from that.

As for doing this automatically, id rather keep it generic with no options specific to any given os, especially because the user is free to edit the files after it's been run once.

Also note it doesn't detect the filesize of SETUPPP correctly (there are some files which simply won't report the right filesize to C#), so it can't be done automatically anyway. When I removed IE integration from my OSR2.5 I had to edit the filesize value in layout.inf manually.

Nice coincidence. What I'm planning to do after finishing my update packs and maybe something for DOS, is attempting to make a post install utility that makes it easy to install and set common things, mostly based on that guide and a similar one for 95. I'd have to learn Visual Basic 6 though, no C# for Windows 95.

[EDIT] Heh, looks like cacheman already does what I had in mind for the memory optimizations anyway: https://msfn.org/board/topic/129189-read-ahead-and-behind-optimisation-i-want-to-increase-it/
