LINUX is a freeware version of the UNIX operating system.

The contents of LINBIN2.ZIP are:

READ.ME
INSTALL.DOC
USRBIN2.TAR

This is the second of the archives containing the Linux support
files and binaries. To use this archive you will have had to
obtained LINUX1.ZIP (the root and boot images) and installed
Linux on your hard disk. You will also want to find LINBIN1.ZIP
which contains many file utilities, although it is not neccessary
to have it in order to install this package. This packages contains
many support tools including grep, gawk, find, locate, and kermit.

Do to the size of the Linux operating system, and the difficulty
of obtaining all the pieces without access to Internet, the
feasibility of distribution of Linux via diskette or CD rom is
being discussed. If you have access to SmartNet or RelayNet
(RIME) then you may want to join the Unix conferences to follow
developments. Post your messages to Dick Zuccarini on these nets
or to his BBS at 1-818-894-5355 (Bill of Rights BBS).

  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/
