Can anybody give me any insight as to how tuff it would be to port
an Xwindows app from LInux to Dos or Windows??

There are a couple of Xlib emulations for WinDOS: here's some discussion from
a djgpp list (names/addresses lost in time) on one (with maybe enough clues to

We are planning to use Linux box as a PCNFS server for our
DOS/Windows boxes ( this part is done ). I never played with
CDROM under Linux and I am not shure if it would be possible
to use it from DOS machine.
I will be happy if someone would share his expirience with nfs
Is it posssible?
Is it always possible?
If it is not always possible, then what is critical?
Our CDROM is planned to be SCSI (if it is important).
Many thanks in advance
