Linux BBSes don't work like DOS BBSes do, which is a pity, IMHO.  Check
and there a couple BBS systems on there...  One of the most promising is
INTERACT, but I don't know what it's current state is.

That's the source code to all the software on your first CD.  

BTW, I think Linux could really use a good BBS package, which is something
I've tried working with sometimes, maybe someone on SEUL would care to get
