Sorry, too many painful memories of that WinOS2 fiasco (wooden stake?).

It was the native version that I bought. I didn't think the version was
that high? I thought the native version was something like 6.0 or 6.5.
Then WordPerfect Office Suite 7.0 was WINE based, and I dunno if they ever
delivered 8.0 on WINE? Didn't want to support those. I'm a bit fuzzy on
details. I must have it around here somewhere, but I haven't loaded it up
since Mandrake 7.? or so. I've been wrestling with a lot of other stuff.
BTW, thanks guys (John-Paul and Rick) for the info.
