Bear Access for DOS

This is Bear Access for DOS, from my ancient past at Cornell University. These disks were given to me at the start of Fall Semster 1992, and contain a suite of DOS applications to access the then very experimental campus Ethernet. Tools include Telnet, Gopher, FTP, NNTP news reader, and a POP mail client. Notably absent: any kind of web browser, because that wasn't really a thing yet. Note: You'll need your own DOS Ethernet packet drivers, they weren't included on these disks.

These are 360K double-sided, double density 5.25" disk images. Have fun trying to get them to work in an emulator! I don't think VMware supports 360K floppy images. Maybe QEMU does.

Or, if you're VERY adventurous, you can download these and write them to real floppies using a tool like rawrite or dd, and then use them on a real 1992 vintage PC. But that is left as an exercise for the reader.
