I don't know if something like prlink would run over BeOS. I'm in a
similar boat since I use a Mac, and so I'm pretty much forced to keep a
486 in the corner running MS-DOS and Star Commander just for disk
transfers (it's much faster to do backups to the PC's hard disk than
back up to floppy all the time on the 128).
