(1) Just load DOSLFN in your config.sys--you get long filename
support (at least under DOS 7.x) without having to run Windoze.
(2) Run under Win9x--you get TCP/IP support as well as support for a
few other protocols. Win9x doesn't get in the way of doing direct
port access, generally speaking.
No, I'm not an MS booster, but I do like as little interference as
possible when I'm twiddling bits on ports.
