In an earlier posting, I reported my trouble getting microport's
DOS MERGE kernel to do floating point arithmetic on a board without
Charles D'Englere cleverly suggested that the problem might be incorrect
reporting by the BIOS of the fp status of the board.
This was correct: the command
patch -k /unix fp_kind 1
fixes this up nicely. (Look up the fp driver in the documentation:
this is the flag that tells the fp driver what type of fp processor
is on board.) ISC's driver has a variable of the same name, and
probably can take the same patch if you encounter similar difficulty.
