Actually since i did the ports tenon supplies (with lots of help from act,
tenon, and others [including mike]) i think i can speak with the final
world (when you call tenon they call me ;-) ).  Mike is 100% accurate.  we
did a port to the machten 68k version (Machten 2.2 and 2.3), but it was not
maintained after 3.04 as i gave my 68k desktop machine and finally my
laptop to my fiance and replaced both with powerpc macs.

best jim

  "DOS Computers ... are by far the most popular, with about 70
million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans, on the other
hand, may note that cockroaches are far more numerous than
humans, and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life
form." (New York Times, November 26, 1991)
