Note: WWIVgate 1.09 changed the usage of the DOS WWIV_Net environment
variable from its usage in previous releases. Prior to 1.09,
the environment variable was one of three techniques for specifing
which INIT defined network was the FIDO Fakenet network. For
release 1.09 and later, it is used to define which INIT defined
network is the base WWIV_Net compatible network.

readme.1st: This file.
