Speaking of that, some of my install disks are bad.  I have 
a legal copy, but I am having a hard time finding a way to 
replace the bad disks.  A wares site allows download of WP 
5.1, but I really want 6.0.

Why doesn't Corel or whoever owns WordPerfect 6.0 Dos 
release it to the public domain?

I think my backup copy of WordPerfect 6.0 dos works, but 
it's acting weird.

I wrote a lot of papers using Wordperfect 6.0 dos, it's a 
nice piece of software.  Getting replacement install disks 
for it these days though is tough.  I think 6.2 is the last 
dos version of WordPerfect.  Surprisingly, I found a lot 
of sites talking about how to install Wordperfect 6.0 for 
dos on an XP system.

These days, openoffice is my word processor of choice.  On a
freedos system, that isn't an option.  I wish freedos had a 
free word processor that is comparable to WordPerfect 6.0 
for dos.

I don't expect freedos 1.1 to have a free word processor, but
it would be nice if there was some action to include one 

It's illegal to let someone who doesn't own WordPerfect get
a copy from you for free, but what if I could download an 
image of just the 2 or 3 disks that have gone bad?  If 
I'm a liar and I don't have WordPerfect 6.0 dos, I won't 
get it by downloading 1 or 2 of the install disks.

I have Wordperfect Suite 8 on CD, but freedos doesn't have a
gui that is compatible with Windows 95.  At least not yet.
