Re: Need Creative Method to transfer a file

Hmmm.  I've never used minicom, but if it has a way to log the session
you could (theoretically) uuencode the deb out to the screen and into
the log file...that would suck but should work.  However, if she can
connect from Win95, why not just download the deb from there and then
reboot into linux and install it?
