 Now this is interesting.  Does this mean that 1} Linux is not standard
compatible UNIX, or 2} The CADs aren't really true UNIX programs or
3} You don't get "C" source to compile, only objects, and they don't
bother to supply UNIX objects for the 80x86?

Um... all of the above?

First of all, UNIX was written by ATT, Linux was written by linus Tovalds
(sp?)

Essentially what it is, is a KERNEL routine that takes the place of UNIX's
kernel, in order to allow linux to run *ix generic programs.

Being somewhat loosely based on freeBSD's code, it has been converted to
allow BSD based programs and SystemV type programs to run fairly well.

Because Linus is not some rich SUPER PROGRAMMER (or a major corporation)
he did not attempt to develop his own Unique UNIX like operating system,
but released the code for his kernel routine to the public to allow users
to re-engineer other programs to fit it.

GNU the freeware group adopted his kernel, and began creating among other
things the GNU-C and GNU-C++ compilers which are suitable for doing
"Make's" on the linux kernel.

As software gets obsolete, it is often signed over to the GNU people who
then rewrite it so it will work on Linux.

When software is released as freeware, it often gets adopted by the GNU
people and re-compiled for linux.

Some of the newer distributions are using newer kernels, and newer
versions of Xfree windows, in order to create application interfaces
similar to the interfaces used for the "Next Step" or Win 95 etc.

Trying to run a dual boot system, based on dos/Win3.11 and Linux has given
me no ends of problems because the larger disks that linux recognizes are
not often well dealt with by Dos/Windows, and boot sector redirection is
not well accepted by LILO, the linux bootloader.

i haven't yet tried dual boot with linux, but i have dual booted different
versions of win9x and dos/win3.x, all on the same machine, with system
commander. it puts its own boot record on the disk, and then does what the
selected op sys' boot record would've done. and it can hide/reconfigure
partitions for each selection.

There is no problem with linux and win95 dual booting, but I've heard it is
easier if you have win95 installed first (i've done it this way). Just make
sure there is enough space in a unused partition on your disk and run the
linux boot disk. I put it on the second half of a 4.3 Gb disk.
Place lilo in the mbr and tell also to mount your win95 partition so linux
can acces this partition. Win95 cannot acces the linux partition!

Installing linux is as easy as installing win95 and it will take about 10 -
20 minutes. The worst part is creating a unused partition on your disk but
linux has a repartitioning tool which will keep your data.

What's going on if I've Win98 with FAT32 , can I use LILO and the FDISK from
Linux to create a Partition and installed

It should not be a problem. I did check fdisk (linux) and win 95 FAT32 is
supported and I think it is the same as win98 FAT32. There is also another
partition utility from linux but I do have to search for its name, if
you're interested, which can repartition your drive without loosing your data.

If you need more info you are welcome to mail directly to me because it is
getting a bit off topic i a affraid.
