Eduardo,

Congratulations on writing a network file redirector.  I've been mulling 
this over for a while, trying to build up the nerve to do it.  I have 
"Undocumented DOS, 2nd Ed" as well, and now with this code I have two 
different samples to work with.

I noticed that it doesn't support older versions of DOS - I presume that 
is just a matter of some of the data structures being different, and 
that it would be possible?  Also, your code assumes a Pentium (which 
makes sense for something running under VMWare) - it looks like it could 
be adapted for older CPUs, such as the 8088.  (The only Pentium specific 
instructions that I noticed were in your implementation of chain_intr.  
Is that correct?)

My interest is in doing a virtual hard drive or file system (not decided 
yet) using the network redirector interface.  It would use a packet 
driver to work over Ethernet.


Regards,
Mike

All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
