      Hi, David

      OK, based on what you said, I installed DOS Box on my Linux machine; set
      everything up according to instructions; typed in the command to run
      "The Mill;" held my breath and hit enter.  And it worked like a charm !!!

      I'm impressed.  Now that it's on the HD, there's no waiting while the
      floppy drive catches up with the program calls.  Very nice.  Thanks for
      talking me into it!

      Then, I downloaded the FreeDOS iso and the 7zip.  The p7zip won't edit
      iso files (or at least the Linux version won't).  So the plan now is to
      go ahead and burn the FreeDOS disk on a RW CD and try to add the "Mill"
      files afterward.  I'll let you know if it works.  I don't think it will,
      but, heck, it's worth a try.  I'd really like to have it on a CD so that
      I can use it on other computers without changing anything on them.

      Anyway, thanks a million for the advice !!!
