rem F)iles & S)hell problems fixed...But first it has to be customize
rem to match your particular system configuration as indicated below:
rem
rem

rem you as follows:
rem
rem Your Your
rem File Dos Booted Modem is Addrs
rem name: From Drv: as:
rem
rem FIXHSTA1.COM A: COM1:
rem
rem FIXHSTA2.COM A: COM2:
rem
rem FIXHSTC1.COM C: COM1:
rem
rem FIXHSTC2.COM C: COM2:
rem
rem
rem Now set the comspec string below to point to the drive and
rem path in which the FIXHST??.COM file (the one you chose above)
rem resides:
rem
SET COMSPEC=?:\???????\FIXHST??.COM
rem
rem for example, if you have an xt (boot from drv C) and the IBM modem
rem is addressed as COM1: and you put the FIXHSTC1.COM file in directory
rem C:\PROCOMM the statement above will look like this:

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
