This CDROM contains the Hobbes OS/2 Archives from the Internet site at
Most of the files on this disc are either zip or zoo archives. There
are programs provided in the \utils\dos and \utils\os2 directories for
extracting these files.
We've included a program that helps move around on the disc. Type
'view' or 'os2view' when in the root directory of the CDROM drive.
This program navigates through the complete zipped collection.
Here is a list of some important files and directories:
readme.txt The file you are currently reading
00_index.htm Index for this CDROM in HTML format.
os2view.exe File Browser/Uncompressor for OS/2
view.exe File Browser/Uncompressor for MS-DOS
utils\w16view.exe File Browser for Windows 3.1.
utils\w32view.exe File Browser for Windows 95, Windows NT, and Win32s.
docs\view.doc Documentation regarding VIEW.EXE
Floppies of IBM diskette images can be created using the
utils/os2/loaddskf.exe under DOS or OS/2. Diskette images usually
have file extensions of ".dsk" or ".#dk" for multi-image sets.
OS/2 treats all files that are on a CDROM as being read only. This
attribute is carried with the file when it is either copied or
"dragged and dropped" to a hard disk or floppy. This attribute must
be cleared before the file can be deleted. From the command prompt
type "attrib -r ". From the Program Manager, open the
settings pages for the file, select file, go to the third page, and
un-check the "read-only" box.
Some files available on the OS/2 archives at ftp-os2.cdrom.com have
been removed for this CDROM distribution because of copyright or
export restriction. These include:
DES Encryption for OS/2
