RE: HELP! - Please

Ernie, Suhaib, & others:

Thanks for the responses.  At this point I appreciate
*all* help, even guesses :-)

Not sure I understand this point.  Could you give an example
of how the behavior is different when the (DOS) directory
is physically there vs. not.  The command you gave above
works for me either way.

Can this order be controlled?

I would prefer to use /... (text!=binary) most of the time and
cd to /cb/... (text=binary) when for example I want the 'cmp'
command to compare both binary files in their entirety.
Are you saying 'cmp' was not properly ported?
