Comments:

  VERSION is a FreeDOS specific command to specify what DOS version to
  report. For a kernel with FAT32 support, 7.10 is a good choice.
  Otherwise, 5.0 and 6.22 are common values. FreeCOM command.com 
  'ver /r' displays both the reported and the FreeDOS internal version
  numbers. VERSION does not change the FreeCOM version number as reported
  by running 'ver'.
  However, the DOS version number is changed, as reported in 'ver /R'.
  VERSION is needed to make some old DOS programs think that it works with
  the correct DOS version.
  VERSION is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file
  in order to work.
