Whatever you did fixed it.

However I broke it almost immediately.
Beyond repair I think this hapened because I tryed
to use vi but ESC is like turning off the power in

These were my observations.

I see that there is no dir command and that ls
lists things vertically allowing for very few items
to show I suppose an option changes this but man ls
tells me there is no manual entry for ls.

What I would really like that would make Fuzix useful to me.

0. I assume there is a shutdown command if there isn't
    there should be.
1. wget & ftp-client the fuzix system should have it's
    own IP in the network.
2. The ability to mount OS9, vfat, iso and RSDOS drives.
3. Remote access with ssh.
4. nano instead of vi
5. More robust file system loosing power should
    not destroy the system. Repair should not mean
    haveing to type y a hundred times.

These are the MINIMUM.

Extended Wish List: These would be nice but not so necessary.

1. A browser like lynx or elinks with support for
the drivewire protocol.
2. Use of the arrow keys to call back commands.
3. A file browse like Midnight Commander.
