No fooling?  Damn, I'll have to see if I can find that.  I have Corel
Linux 1.2 (what they lamely called "Corel Linux 2nd Edition") around
here somewhere.  It'd be nice for me to put in place of... I mean, it'd
be nice to add to whatever unspecified shady spots on the Internet one
can still find xwp 8.0 for download.  ;->

Yep.  I can attest that, without this, 8.0 is just a paperweight on
recent Linux distributions, and a virtual one at that.

Cheers,            There are only 10 types of people in this world --
