Contrary to the claims about the impossibility of booting to a term32
screen and then creating windows in NitrOS-9 version 3.2.6 I have just
done exactly that using the scripts from the 6309L2 80 track disk.
Here is what I did. I changed mb to use rel_32 and then changed
standard.bl so that the following relevant modules went into the os9boot
CoWin.io in addition to CoVDG.io
all of the W modules
In essence, there was very little changed in the two scripts. After
booting, all that was necessary was to
to get a nice 80 column text window.
