It pains me to see this much effort going into what should be a small 
utility that takes the relevant mTCP obtained network parameters and 
writes them into the WATTCP file.  There are 15 invocations of the 
mt.exe program in that script.

I suggest that somebody write a small program that takes the current 
configuration parameters from the mTCP configuration file and updates a 
WATTCP configuration file.  It should not be a terribly complicated 
program - you just have to do some light string processing.  Then one 
would be able to run the mTCP DHCP program, run the utility, and have 
both mTCP and WATTCP apps configured and ready to go.

As an alternative you can contact David Dunfield and see if he would 
license his code in a way that FreeDOS could use it.  Or just simply use 
it, but don't distribute it with FreeDOS.  (A readme file or the wiki 
can point to it as a useful utility no matter what the license is, or if 
source is not even available.)
