Re: WIFI on DOS (was: bsum - compute BSD checksumsof yo

Maybe the people who have produced the mini
also wrote some software to make it useful.
I like DOS I hope it moves foreward. Windows
is so single PC oriented. I've tried moving
windows to a twin PC - same everything and it
somehow knew it was different and didn't
want to run. DOS has no such problems.
DOS finds its legs and wants to run.


cheers
