I won't argue any more which of your method or mine is stronger or weaker. We have seen neither was bullet proof, right ? So I bit it (the bullet), and am using the method outlined by Geoff instead.

! Forgot to answer that question in your earlier msg :

I already explained, MSDOS 8 is a different beast, CS is fixed, there are NO stubs in DOS data and no need, either.


The digression/distraction is closed. I'm coding ATM, little time left before the usual XMas related occupations will assail us one more time...

Cheers,
