OK, so if the Win95 version is also commercial, then the DOS variant
remains. And I believe, if MSKERMIT will not run on the WinNT PC (which
I am afraid will be true), at least DOS will hopefully run on the PC to
support MSKERMIT. Then, you need a disk partition formatted as FAT (not
NTFS), and you can move the files in through MSKERMIT and out (after
rebooting into NT) with "Windoze Exploder".

And, when done, make sure the PDP-11 goes to a good home: don't you dare
to trash it! ;-)
