I have tried this post a few times from work's machine but it does not
appear to have posted so I am trying from my home machine. Sorry if
it has appeared more than once.
I am in the process of converting a system from Xenix to hopefully
Lunix and have been playing with SuSe. The Xenix system uses

Here's hoping for a replay. Thanks

of work does not handled the volume of mail from SuSe very well. Ok
