Would DOSEMU also work? I just assume "copy blah.txt PRN" works there
(haven't tried!).   ;-)

You mean this site?   http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/

BTW, I swear my aunt found an old book (paperback) copy of
"Wordperfect 5.1 for DOS" recently. I have no idea why she buys some
of the things she does, but obviously it was (vaguely) interesting to
me, even if I only use DOS but not Wordperfect!. (In other words, if
anybody would find this book to be a useful second-hand purchase,
please contact me. I assume my aunt would offer a reasonable price,
but I'll have to nag her, if needed.)

Ah yes, now I see, it does recommend DOSEMU [+ cups-bsd ?] under
Linux. (Kinda confusing having ten bazillion pages, one for each OS,

BTW, I take minor issue with the suggestion to buy "only WinXP" and
"not update the KB that broke EMS". Windows Update will probably just
nag until you do it, or they might eventually make it mandatory (ugh).
I'd suggest EMSMagic (TSR) as workaround. Heck, even Nidud (of Doszip)
made his own temporary EMS server as a quick hack for this.
