Sorry bout the HTML

I installed the DOS client on about 30 clean machines at school and they
were all reported to be infected by the network administrator.  The virus
caused me to have to remove the clients from all of them.  Now the
administrators don't like me too much.  I don't know, maybe it's just me.
