Get the iBCS emulator from tsx-11.mit.edu /pub/linux/ibcs2. Build it. Load 
it. Run WP.

	Easier said than done.  I grabbed the latest (as well as some 
older) sources for iBCS and _none_ of them would compile on my system.  
Have you actually built the latest (or at least a recent) version of iBCS 
on a new kernel (1.2.1, say)?  If so, did it compile without incident?  I 
am dying to get this going!  Any assistance would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Mike.

The latest iBCS compiles against 1.2.x kernels using both a.out and ELF 
compilers (although the Xenix 286 emulator only works as a.out).
