Re: FTP client TSR for DOS?

Um, isn't FTP considered insecure and obsolete? :confused: It's also very primitive. Browsers dropped support for it nearly a decade ago. If speed is not a problem, just use a nullmodem connection.

And of course you know they won't be autodetected on its own, unless this AMI BIOS is new enough to have an " …

Re: My 286 Mainboard build

Excellent. I have a homebrew8088.com board, this seems in the same kind of spirit but interesting to see what you had to overcome via an FPGA chipset. I wish I could do that kind of stuff. How much different would it need to be for an 8086 or 386SX? Someday someone will take on a 486 VLB board... …
