Does that work when you run configure.bat with no arguments?  It worked 
for me.

Apparently, the name of the server has changed; it is now
http://www.vsz.bme.hu.  However, that server is *VERY* slow, and the 
links to the zip files are broken anyway, since they use the old URL.
Use the alternate URL http://pop.tvnet.hu/~molnarl/ which works and is 
also faster.

Ha!  So many things can go wrong with Windows 95 wrt the DJGPP setup that 
I wonder how can somebody be so sure that their setup is okay.  I know I 
aint that sure about my setup, and I'm building with DJGPP a LOT.
