There are a lot of possibilities.  I had some ideas for a TSR that would 
present a new DOS drive letter and use a machine elsewhere on the 
network to provide the actual storage, either in the form of a virtual 
hard drive or through SMB.  It would use the DOS network redirector 
interface which is not documented by Microsoft, but there are some books 
and sample code around.  But that code is quite a bit different in 
nature than any of the mTCP code that I have written, so it has not been 
started yet.

Part of my making the code open source was based on the realization that 
I just don't have the time to do it all.  Hopefully I can help other 
people get up to speed on DOS networking so they can be productive.
