DOS386,

I have been busy at work the last few days, I'll get that uploaded soon. However,
Glenn McC has always hosted it on his site, but it's not usually visible on his homepage. I can't remember the URL right now, I have to boot DOS to find it. You can ask at AQCCC.

BTW, the above progress has not come cheep, there are always bugs in my core due to a low number of testers and I run some dangerous experiments. If you work with my fork you must expect some pain, ask Ron, Eric, and Glenn ;-))
