Hi Carey

	Yes, I have a statistical package Genstat for Windows which requires
FlexLM licence management.  The software is in a share on the Samba
fileserver which gets mounted as directory G:  In autoexec.bat (Win95)
there is a line :

	set LM_LICENSE_FILE=g:\gen541\license\license.dat

The file license.dat on the server is a symbolic link to my UNIX FlexLM
licence file which contains licence keys for both UNIX and Windows.
