This version has its own notepad, but it doesn't appear to have
wordpad.  (There's no "wordpad.exe" that I can find, but there
are two identical copies of "notepad.exe" -- one in .../windows
and the other in .../windows/system32.)

For floppies, which AFAIK are always formatted as FAT, I'd settle
for having it use mtools so the disk wouldn't need to be mounted
at all :)
