Just to let people know...
The NitrOS-9 site is back up and all three zips downloaded with
no erors and no retries - and on my dialup link.
Whatever you did, Alan, it WORKS FINE NOW! Thanks!
After a quick look at the zips, the only obvious problem I see is
in the readme files, where they still reference the old dskini URL
instead of the replacement now available on the nitro wbbsite.
Use that link <http://www.nitros9.org/dskini.zip> instead.
Now I'm off to burn a few floppies...
