Hi Richard,

If you don't want to use HDB-DOS, but just want to boot NitrOS-9, you
can alternatively burn a DWDOS ROM which will boot directly into
NitrOS-9, loading everything (including kernel and os9boot) over
DriveWire. Instead of a ROM, you can also load DWDOS from tape or DECB
floppy. In other words, you don't need a NitrOS-9 boot floppy if you
have DriveWire.

DWDOS can be found at http://toolshed.sf.net

It is not a "DOS", but the equivalent of the RSDOS "DOS" command,
working over DriveWire.
