hi.  you have to admit though, that dos is going back a bit, especially 
with no speech support and being able to have full speech support from 
linux? just my opinion. i haven't used dos for at least 10 years, and 
although you can boot from CD to a dos prompt, isn't the same as using 
the floppy disk system. at least with a floppy disk you could tell when 
something was happening, times move on i guess...
