6.4 GB? Nice.
Once the mirror(s) are set up, we really should solicit the DEC
fanclub for any files that may be missing from the tree. They probably
should be limited to 'official' DEC files, or ones that relate to DEC
hardware, like the special files needed to get X running on the DEC 3000
As for the Win98 box, I'm not too worried. All the important stuff
is backed up. :) I have a basic Win98 Ghost image (get me up and running
quick!) around here too, somewhere...
