 that out.

 Keep your eyes open ! :-)

Brian,
IIRC, DOS-94 is basically just a GUI to the utilities that are
included with MS DOS 6.2 thru 6.22, namely Backup, Defrag
Scandisk...I downloaded once sometime back, and I did not
find an easy way to change to targets for the shortcuts.  But,
if you use MS DOS 6.2XX, it might be handy.  I have seen
other "Win9X Like" DOS shells, one is shareware, DosStart,
the other freeware, Desktop 2.  I had mixed results with DosStart,
maily losing the mouse cursor.  Desktop 2 seems to require a
bit more hard drive than I wish to allow for a shell.  Of all the DOS
shells I've used, Magic Desk is still my all-time favorite...I have
it available from my Wizard57M web page...

Another DOS shell I've tinkered with is WinTix, still under active
development.  I think the URL is www.wintix.com, not sure though!
See you later!
