We've got a system that can boot either Windows 98 or OS/2. We have
vsoup and yarn set up on OS/2 and have been reading news with it for
some time now.
Since the primary user of this system is starting to do more of her
work in Win98, I'm wondering if it is possible to set up vsoup and yarn
in Win98 so that the news can be imported and read from either OS.
As far as I can tell, the format of the data files like newsrc and
news.dat should be the same, but there seems to be a conflict with the
executable code. Both the yarn executables and the news.dat have to be
in the %YARN% directory, but the Win98 and the OS/2 executables are
named the same, so they cannot both be in the same directory. E.G. I
can't have both the OS/2 yarn.exe and the Win98 yarn.exe in the same
Has anyone else tried this? Any advice? Thanks.
