Sorry, I don't have time now.  My win95 box crashed yesterday due to software
error.  I used Norton rescue disk to recover from the crash but I forgot I was
using the lilo swap device option (to boot win95 from the second hard drive),
then Norton swapped the partitions of the drives :-((  No more linux access
till now: I have to install a Debian core system on a removable magneto-optical
disk to be able to run dd then restore the partition tables by hand (nice linux
which could be installed on arbitrary medium :-) )  But Norton disk doctor is
unable to restore my Win95 disk...  I'm reformatting the disk to reinstall
win95 from scratch...
