Subjectdmsdos success story :-)

Hi

I was searching around the net yeterday (Christmas day) and found your
dmsdos package at sunsite. I read the dmsdos.doc and built the system
for linux using your makefile (no edits required). I am running kernel
2.1.17 in a RedHat envirnment. The W95 side is a 261 MB partition
(hda2) compressed (using DriveSp3 'High') to yield 435 MB. Since the
Ultra compression level is not supported, I had booted W95, turned off
Ultra, and told it to optomize for speed. It removed all of the Ultra
compressed files. I was suprised at the small benefit the Ultra
compression was providing. The free space changed from 56 MB to 29MB.
To me that means I only lost 6% in drive size? No big deal. I have
been able to read/write files to the W95 partition without any known
errors:-)

Is it time to suggest adding this to the kernel source tree? For us
with laptops and limited disk resources, this is a valuable addition.

Thanks for the Christmas Present.
