Be prepared to beat your head against the wall a few times. The
documentation is very out of date. I had trouble tracking down pdether,
pdipx and I am not sure I got the correct files.
There is something in the dosemu.conf file about enabling the netware
hack, but I'm not sure what this does since I cannot find any
Following the howto referenced in the howto above (which I had to download
an rpm, create a tgz package and extract the file from there to read) it
says to enable the netware hack. I don't think this is the same thing.
Anyway, I get as far as loading lsl, but nothing else will work.
I can run netx, but spx does not configure.
Rconsole will not connect since spx is not enabled. Before this, it was
because ipx/spx will not load.
It's a real pain in the butt.
