We're going to setting up PCs running DOS, Macs and a Unisys 6000/50
(really a Convergent 386 box) running ATT SYSVr3.2. We will be using
WordPerfect in all three environments. I called WordPerfect, and they said
5.1 is available for PCs, a 4.2 that can read 5.0 for the Mac and 4.2 for
UNIX. 5.0 will be out for XENIX first then UNIX. Both are in Beta.

Ok, now that I'm writing this, what is the easiest way to network these
three environments for non-techies?
