It's good!

for DOS you should use backslash instead of the slash, e.g. 

Boot a DOS system with CD drivers, then run boot.bat contained in the \install
directory of the first CD.

a short example could help here, e.g.:

d:                               (change to the CD drive)
cd \disks
rawrite2 -f resc1440.bin -d a:   (a: is the 1,44 MB floppy drive)

Thanks a lot for the good work!
