Dear All

In reply to my posting about unix2dos producing warning message
about inability to open /dev/kbd to get the keyboard type
I've received a few suggestions which I summarised, even though
neither of them seemed to explain the problem or offer a remedy.
After quering Sun I've learned (after them digging for about
2 days) that : this is a known problem, caused by some kind of
a bug in unix2dos, dos2unix, that manifests itself on the machines
running under SunOS 4.1.x and having A DUMB TERMINAL for a console.
There is no fix and no workaround.
