I downloaded uttcpdos.exe, built a DOS bootable floppy, and copied
uttcpdos.exe to it. When I booted up and ran the file, it appeared as if it
wanted to install to the hard drive. My 600E is built with only Linux, using
rieserfs. I was concerned that if I continued, I might screw up the
partition table or boot sector of the disk and did not want to do that, so I
aborted. Has anyone done this? Does it (uttcpdos) write to the disk or to
RAM? If it writes to RAM, then I can use this disk to create an ISO file to
burn to CD.
