Re: still no c,h,s

Thanks, Joey and Per,

The Function key for special hardware parameters lists it, but does not tell
us that it is not available in 2.6. - may be someone ought to notate it.
Sorry for obsessing upon this issue, but even a few thousand people who feel
they have lost their windows install will make for a bit of ugliness.

Thanks for all the great and hard work.  We leeching free-loading non-coders
really sincerely appreciate it.

Very best wishes,
