Stheg, I have been alerted to vinum, thanks. I'm going to make the installation of the new drive simple, but perhaps in the future I'll set one drive up under vinum and learn about it. There's too much to learn all at once! On CP/M. Remember IOBYTE? Try to make that work in today's world. Or PIP? Ouch. The system was simple and useful at the time. Jay Rio Linda, CA, USA PS..
