not from me - I am not using it. The questioner on fedora list got what
he wanted working once he switched to share mode and I was willing to
let it go as that made him happy and I have little to no recollection of
the DOS Network client at all. Your anticipation that the DOS client can
be happy in user mode is probably correct...it was difficult to guide
him on a client that I can't possibly see.
