I am still fairly new to dealing with OS stuff, but it was my understanding
that in order to do anything with the stuff at parcftp that I would need
some flavor of UNIX.  If that is so then how would I get the new database
stuff (short of re-writing it all in this minimal one) to work with the
minimal one I have now? The whole point of this msdosmoo is that I can use
DOS. (oh...btw I got it to work using the syntax you suggested....many, many
thanks)  So...either I have a lot of progging to do or someone may know of
an easier way.  

One last thing...if anyone responds between now and Monday morning I would
appreciate it being CC-ed to the addy since I am not
yet subscribed to MOO-Cows from home yet (still waiting for
permission...Majordomo says I gotta get approval from list owner) :0)

Thank in advance for any assistance.
