Wow.  You're dead right.  Good call.

I guess beta tests serve additionally to figure out what type of _stupid_
mistakes people might make.  Glad I can be of help. :)

Now that I think about it, I hid this from myself (in the way that I
renamed the file for it's short existance in the dos world) by calling
it ``boot'' instead of ``boot.gz'' - failing to remind myself that it
needs to be decompressed.

Perhaps renaming these files to dos friendly names or creating similar
links would help the likes of myself.
