Well, this may seem "off the wall", but why doesn't someone who has
good archives and has been through the process put a pair of small
docs together that contain this info. Then maybe they could be
distributed every month or so like the common questions on .questions...

       /////// read in any company name you please...
And if someone gets copies of the docs that those of us on the net
have written and try to add them to their collection, we can burn 'em.
It would serve them right. They should have written the stuff to begin
   Oh well, maybe I'd be in a better mood if the mainframe would stay
up today...

Oh.. for the curious.
I'm running ISC 1.0.6 on a Mod 80...
I've been through the above, and then tossed their support software.
I run MODEM(modified) instead of the getty,uugetty and I only use ASY
on tty00...
