SignWriter 4.4 on Linux

While this doesn't apply to Windows XP, it is still good news.  I installed
SuSE Linux 7.3 (one of the various distributions of Linux) on my home
computer.  I also installed dosemu which is a DOS emulator for Linux.
SignWriter appeared to work quite well.  I haven't done an exhaustive test
of it, but it seems to work well!  So that means that SignWriter should work
with Linux on the Intel platform for sure.  I am not sure if dosemu still
works on Linux for the PowerPC or other hardware.

>>From what I can tell from the man pages installed on my system, this is
dosemu 1.0.2 dated May 2001.  There may be a more current version of dosemu
at  Again, this is for Linux systems with at least a
2.0.x kernel.
