OX is a DOS device driver that directs AUX output to the Monochrome
display, and takes AUX input from the keyboard BIOS. Its main purpose
is to let you use the Monochrome display for "Rest In Peace" messages
and the PC's keyboard to respond to the "Abort, Break, Ignore?" prompt.

You should still use the /M switch with SymDeb rather than /"=AUX",
because SymDeb does not properly direct memory allocation messages to
AUX in the latter case.

This driver is also handy for other uses in DOS, for example, you can
say DIR >AUX and put a directory listing on the Monochrome display while
you're working on the color display.

This new version of OX fixes the keyboard problem the older version had.
The old version let you reply to an "Abort, Break, Ignore?" prompt
*once* after booting, but subsequent attempts failed. Now, you can
reply to that message as many times as you like.
