RN> What's a Clarkson Packet Driver?
No, I'm serious Mike. I bought the software from Clarkson, and they
asked me not to call them the Clarkson Packet Drivers. They've
already threatened to sue other people infringing on the Clarkson
trademark, so I'm sure they're serious about it.
They're the Crynwr Packet Driver Collection.

My understanding was that this imposes constraints of some kind on the packet
driver, and that it must be written so that it will work with Windows, DJGPP,
or some DPMI system running on top of it. In other words, my understanding i
that some packet drivers will work, but others may not. Is this wrong?
Yes, this is wrong. Anything that goes through DPMI to access packet
drivers (which DJGPP will do) will work over any packet driver.
