I did not test these, so there might be errors. Under Linux there should be no problem, also Amiga behaves very well when moving a file that is open. On Windows9x it won't work, as the system is very picky about open files, you just can not do anything with those. It is a problem ( or a design decision) with Windows not FAT as FAT under Linux (I have some shared volumes) behaves like it should (in my opinion) Greetings, Jussi -- Jussi Hagman CS in Åbo Akademi University Studentbyn 4 D 33 [juhagman--abo--fi] 20540 Åbo [jhagman--infa--abo--fi] Finland
