I want to try the SVGALIB/Linux port on old ZipSlack too, but that will have to wait for another day. (I imagine it won't work, no huge surprise, incompatibilities suck.)

Arachne actually works better than I expected, but it's kinda slow on some sites. Also, some sites don't work fully correctly or use too much new-fangled, incompatible stuff (Javascript). So it's kinda a crap shoot. But anyways, the fact that it works at all is very very cool! I even took a bunch of screen caps of various sites with Boreal's SNARF TSR. (DOS386, how do you take your screens? BOCHS?) My guess is that it's probably not used more because nobody can find or setup their packet drivers. :-/
