        There were some OEM versions of 3.3 that allowed greater than
32meg per partition, notably Zenith's 3.3+. Is the 3.31 with 500meg
partitons a Compaq-specific item? With the exception of Zenith, I
thought the 32meg partition barrier wasn't broken until DOS 4? Not
that I'd ever recomend the use of PC-DOS 4 to anyone.....buggy as all
