Well, thats what my docs tell me (ie. helppc, it runs under dos).  What
know for certain, is that it checks bit 1 of the vga status register. 
sorry if I'm confusing anyone with my previous two messages, one stating
it was bit 1 and the other bit 2 but the true one is the first one, bit
1 and
light pen trigger set.  Anyway, what do say to my patch? Is it worthy
to be submitted to wine-patches?
