replying to PWS posted by Woz

I was looking for it but I am not sure if this is it.....

Windows NT option pack for windows 95?
But it looks like it's just a trial program.
Located at:
http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/ntoptionpack/download3.asp?Site1=0&Version=60&Product=4&Language=0&StepNumber=4

The pws10a.exe does not time out.

Also I see that pws10a.exe let's you ftp but after using the pws for
Windows 98(comes on its own cd.) It does not have ftp so I am using the
pws for 95 on my 98 machine.........

Hey WOZ. Is PWS4 in the retail version of frontpage???
