A long format will do that provided you have a fixpack installed. Any one. There
was a problem in the GA version of HPFS which hid disk errors so doing a long format
before you apply a fixpack is a complete waste of time. It was corrected in FP1.
Hard disks usually don't have bad spots; they're all mapped out during low-level
formatting. Long formats are most useful on removable media such as Zip, Jaz, MO
and so on

I've just finished a review of DriveCopy 2.0 for POSSI, which should be published
in the Nov. issue. However, one pertinent detail should be made known to ALL OS/2
If you use Boot Manager and allow DriveCopy 2.0 to copy the entire drive, your
Boot Manager menu will be hosed -- only DOS and Windows remain on the menu. You
must boot to OS/2 diskettes, run OS/2 Fdisk, and add the OS/2 bootable partition(s)
back to the Boot Manager menu manually.
Look in the Communicator 4.04 folder, that was created at installation, for the
Netscape User Profile Manager. It allows creation of profiles for multiple individual
If you haven't noticed the IBMPCL driver that LexMark Laser printers use prints
graphics from Communicator upside-down.
There is a workaround, at least for some of the the Lexmarks...Basically, using
a compatible HP LaserJet driver.
Our Optra L printer also is compatible with the HP LaserJet 4, so I loaded those
drivers (create a new printer object on the same LPT port) and now Comm/2 prints
just fine. Look in the booklet that comes with the Lexmark printers for compatible
Hope this helps.

I just found the 14 harcoded in the toolbar code.
That will be upped to maybe 25 or so for the OS/2 version in the future.
Set it and Comm will report himself as Windows version
Editor note: Be aware that according to Mike Kaply in a later reply to this post,
this user preference setting can be problematic in that the reverse (setting "true"
to "false" does not work. So if you want to stop having Comm/2 report
itself as a windoze version you have to remove it from the prefs.js file. I tried
this on a ZDS site and it does work. I removed it after trying it, since I don't
want my browser hits to be counted as coming from the dark side.
If only the text mirrors, switch your printer font to be a truetype font such
as Times Roman MT 30, Arial, or Courier New.
That should fix it.
Just thought I'd pass along this tip that I discovered. If you need to change
the web browser that Smartsuite apps call when you click one of their Internet buttons
(like Organizer's button to go to the Almanack page), or send the URL to the currently
running copy of Netscape instead of launching a new instance, you need to do this:
Launch REGEDIT2.EXE in the /OS2/SYSTEM directory.
Expand the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT tree.
Scroll down to "http" and expand it all the way down (through "shell" and "open") until you come to "command".
Right click on the data in the "(Default)" key, pick "Modify", and change the path to the new browser, making sure it's followed with a "%1" (which represents the URL).
You shouldn't need to reboot, but you might need to restart any SS components
that are running.
If you want to send the URL to the currently running Netscape/2 session, you
need to grab the utility called XFolder from http://www2.rz.hu-berlin.de/~h0444vnd/os2.htm
You don't need to install the whole thing, you just want the program NETSCDDE.EXE
that comes with it. Set that as your browser using the above method, and it will
feed whatever URL is passed to it to the currently running Netscape session - or
start Netscape if it -isn't- already running.

I clicked on the WarpCenter's version of the window list and specified "Desktop"
only to see all my windows to get minimized (even a seamless Win-OS/2 window).
If this is a feature, I like it; if this is a bug, tell me which APAR fixes is so
I can avoid it. :-)
There may be some remnant of an "Install" lurking in your CONFIG.SYS
file. Boot to a command prompt (ALT-F1 at the white rectangle) and run CLEANUP.EXE
from the command prompt. This will "Cleanup" your CONFIG.SYS file, and
*should* allow you to boot normally, once again.
Put a percent sign in the Parameters: field. (And click the Help button to see
the whole story. :-)
The reason for the error is that OS/2 passes the object name (directory name, in this case) to the program as a command line argument unless told otherwise.
Editor note: I tried this and it works. Thanks Brandon.
If you use a SET command to set parameters, you can undo it with a - sign.
Example is this situation. I can undo pause with a '/-p.' I can also say,
list all but directories like this... 'dir /a-d'
It also reverses for example 'dir /o-s' for list largest files first.
