Output of file : README contained in archive : UTILS-20.ZIP
NOTE: If you use a file system which limits file names to 14 characters
then you should look over the Manifest file before untarring. You
will probably want to selectively untar the contents and then
rename the files as each is extracted to a name compatible with
14 characters (only those using the minix file system need be
concerned).

  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/
