 Was it CP/M or N*-DOS?

   I don't remember. It's been a while since I've seen it. It was on hard
sectored disks for the NS so I'm guessing that it was for the NS OS. I
think I had it for CM at one time, probably for the Osborne or Kaypro. Hmm,
now that I think about it I'm pretty sure that I have it on the hard drive
of my SB-180.

   You bet!
