For DR-DOS, go to www.caldera.com/drdos. Now their priority is linux. And if
you notice some of the features of DR-DOS are very similar to linux commands
and features. Maybe there is some way to run Windows 9x under DR-DOS.
Possibly even Win ME.. maybe not.

Hmm... The computer froze? No surprise there. <Cough>Get Linux</Cough>

GL! BTW, does your keyboard go into USB too? I think the company that built
your computer went a little USB crazy there. LoL. All you really need to do
is replace your motherboard with another PC-66 model. Or, get a Gigabyte
GA-7DX, a 1.2GHz Athlon, and 256MB DDR memory!! That'll give you the fastest
non-server PC you can get!
