Now that sounds cool.

I'd like to do the same on my Challenge L, but the eoe.sw.xlv software isn't
installed, and I haven't been able to find it on any of the disks I've
tried.  According to the system's error message, it ougt to be on the
Applications CD, but it's not on the Applications CD for 6.5, 6.5.11m, or
6.5.20f, unles it's hidden or disguised in some way.

Can someone furnish me with a clue?
