Hello Todd,

Yes, I fear it's the way I have to go. ;-(

Anyway, in my environment, I mostly use a DOS-Box inside of VMWare, so
using physical media would not be that reasonable, would it? I rarely go
to a real DOS box, mostly for testing purposes (especially timing). This
is mostly done with the binaries only (compiling is slow like hell on
that machine).

Why should I use vfat on Linux? Wouldn't it make better sense to use FAT
only, as MS-DOS cannot handle lower-case names and/or long filenames,

BTW: After having a look into DJGPP, I found that there is already a CVS
version inside of it. Unfortunately, it is some CVS 1.9 or CVS 1.10
(both options are there), and there is no network support in.

I doubt it would make much sense to try to port it over to DOS, as the
potential user base would not be that big. Because of this, I think I
will try something different, taking into account your suggestions here.

Stay tuned! ;-)
