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

From: Dale E Sterner <[hidden email]>

With windows if your PC dies and you want to move
to a dupicate and keep running - your out of luck.
Windows ability to detect small changes is amazing -
it just wants to stop. Win 7 is such a pain to
deal with I think even DOS could beat it.
Every time I install new software it wants to be
reauthenticated.

cheers
