I hate 'info' enough that I find it easier to go through an info file with 

There is a pinfo package that works much better than 'info' for going through 
an info file, but I don't know if it is available or buildable for DOS.

If you have KDE installed, Konqueror had a good way of viewing an info file, 
but Xorg and KDE are far above the capability of any DOS.
