« on: September 14, 2003, 10:41:17 PM »
Hi....

Its been awhile since I looked at AROS.....
I D/Led the latest CD verson today and

use Bzip2 to decompress it, and then untar or Winzip to untar it (if you use Winblows explorer, then you will notice that the .bz2 extention has changed to .tar.tar this is a bug in explorer)

If you need the DOS program to decompress it :

ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/comp/general/typesetting/tex/tools/bzip2/v100/bzip2-100-x86-win32.exe

Uhhhh.... :-D .... yes, I think so.

I D/Led 'BZip2'  (I won't loose it this time,  :-)  promise)

I got bizzy on something else and haven't gotten
back to it.

Thanks .... I think you AROS people are doing a
REALLY great job (wish I had the skills to help)

AROS is standalone... Have you never used a compression tool to make downlaoding from the internet faster before?
