Thanks for the heads up regarding a free version of DOS.   We stupidly threw 
our DOS diskettes years ago, iin 1984 if memory serves, after convincing

never realized that we would eventually find ourselves grappling with a 
bootloader with an inherent weakness that would force us to temporarily revert
back to this ancient OS. :-)

Ironically, I will probably go back to recommending Lilo in the future
unless/until this problem is resolved *without* using other OSes.  Lilo may be a
poorer choice in many respects but its designers do understand that a user might
wish to stop using it under some circumstances.

well, why not install lilo then remove it again (or does it put back what was there before?)
