Re: Can I install Xywrite



Hi Again:
  Back in my Win95 days, I did just that!  I copied XYWrite (I suspect -
but don';t remember - that it was XYDOS) the XY directory to a pair of
floppies and carried them everywhere.  Used them in various places,
inculding PCs at airline clubs (e.g. American and Delta).  Never had any
trouble.
