Some gold in the QUICK.txt file

This is a quick reference to internal and external commands.

Some really honest descriptions in here:

EDLIN

Ridiculous editor

PRINT

The infamous background file printing utility which

fools you into thinking MS-DOS can do something it

really can't.

CONFIG.SYS

A special file which will do all sorts of wonderous

things when the system is booted.
