    Default CP/NET or DR/NET

    Just been reading up on DRIs CPM/CCPM variants on google groups(UseNet) and came across the mention of CP/NET(8-bit) and DR/NET(16-bit). Apparently they were used to connect various CCPM systems to share files. Apparently it predated Netware by a substantial margin. I'm curious to know how this was achieved both software and hardware wise.

    Heres the the thread I've found it mentioned in https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...pm/nkmmXatScLk

    Interesting enough it also mentions in the thread you can multi-task on an XT class system despite what MS said.

    Thomas Byers (DRI)- "You'll have a million people using the A> [MS-DOS prompt] forever. You'll have five million using [nongraphic] menu systems such as Topview, Concurrent PC-DOS, Desq, and those types. But there'll be 50 to 100 million using the iconic-based interfaces."

    Yup--don't forget Concurrent DOS. And MP/M-86 was available for the XT as well, if you wanted to go multi-user.

    Then, (crossing threads), there was Novell's netware running on Televideo's 80186 PM/16 system for multi-user shared-access. Incidentally, the PM/16 used 96 tpi floppies formatted to 740K (8 sector/512 byte).
