Sorry if I missled you Marc, I don't have the Indy release, I was asking
Lee for one, he made the mistake of volunteering a long time ago. I just
am bothering him.

I'm going at 47.8 tonight, wow. However, when using FTP I notice it still
slows to what my 28 was more than capable of, slows to wait for the
Internet traffic, is my guess. Downloaded a file while in this MS "OS"

I'd like the full version, what is on the server at Indy. I'd also like
to begin an install from loadline. We'll see what Lee says.
