Dear Anthony,

Thank you very much for the DOSBox. I can confirm that you binary
works well on my NanoNote.

The emulation makes programs to run slightly slower than on my real 8
MHz 8086 box (the PSION MC600 laptop) :-)

Now I have to investigate if it is possible to make the text mode more
readable... and I have to test the games, too.

Best regards,
Jiri Brozovsky
