  Has anyone come up with a series of benchmarks for MS-DOS?  I mean
more than the usual stuff seen in BYTE hardware reviews of PC's:

	a) Spreadsheet recalculation
	b) 40K file copy
	c) Sieve

and the infamous whetstone and dhrystone.

  Any pointers welcome.  If anyone has some good ideas for better MS-DOS
benchmarks, I'd like to hear them too.  All informative replies will be 
summarized and posted unless otherwise requested.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State
