I don't insist on ms networks.

outdated and obsolete? For sure.
memory hog? I think it's acceptable.
DOS device letter? Of course, that's what I want.

Do you mean TSoft's NFS client. It works quite well
(I've used it previously on some other machine), but it's
shareware and will cease working after an hour if you
don't register. Spending $50 for a registration isn't that
tingly, given that I'm using this installation just for fun
and MSCLIENT basically works.

Maybe an idea for a project?  :-)
