for those of you with MS-DOS systems who read the
INSTALLATION file for the 386BSD dist on,
and were disappointed, because you couldn't get it running straight
from DOS, read on....

(This file is ~ftp/pub/386BSD/INSTALLATION.MS-DOS on agate)

Subject: 386BSD installation instructions.

In agate:~ftp/pub/386BSD/INSTALLATION you describe how to get the
binary images onto disks using dd under SunOS.  There is a utility
"rawrite" that will do the same thing under MS-DOS.  The source,
binary, and documentation are in the files rawrite.c, rawrite.exe, and
rawrite.doc in the directory and
at (where
they are provided for the similar purpose of installing the linux OS).
I think it would be a great service to the millions of people who have
access to DOS but not to SunOS if you put these files in the 386BSD
distribution and mentioned them in the installation instructions.

Thank you for all your effort,

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference,
