KH: The only way you can unpack any of the share archives from any one of the 31 variants of Unix would be to use a machine that's running Windows NT AND Unix. Windows NT will allow Unix daemon to run in the background, where Windows 95 will not. If you need more, ask, but there's are no possibilties in Windows 95.

Best regards,
Dennis
