Thanks for that. I too was very pleased to see Calmira running again; and 
contrary to expectations the little experiment at getting it to run in a 
Linux window has proved more useful than I imagined. Old software that I 
though was inaccessible now seems to be back in use again (an old version of 
MS Works runs just fine in the emulator - I use it to access old files), and 
apart from that it has been very enjoyable learning how to get this all to 
work properly.

If it's accessible under Linux then the emulator should (??!) be able to get 
at it too - though here are no promises with this, and Bochs needs quite a 
bit of arcane configuration at times. Worth a shot though, if you have the 
time and disk space.

Best wishes.
