Dear experts,
I made a DOS bootdisk (from www.bootdisk.com), now I would like to have it loading italian keyboard instead of the standard US it comes with.
In the old autoexec.bat file I would have simply added a line with "keyb it", but here in the bootdisk I don't find that file.
Any idea as to what should I do ?

Have you tried creating an autoexec.bat containing the line?

No I did not, I just created the bootdisk starting from the file in the above mentioned site.
I wouldnt want to add anything in the disk since I am not sure of what could happen if I add , say, an autoexec.bat in the bootdisk created.

all autoexec.bat does is run the commands within at boot time. Give it a go.
