the xindy distribution consists of two parts - the platform-dependent
and the platform-independent files. The MSDOS package contains only
the platform-dependent parts. You find the rest (modules and
documentation) in the file 'xindy-2.0b.tar.gz'. To unpack this file
you need Windows ports of gzip and tar. I think you'll find them on
the CTAN server, too. Just search for gzip and tar.exe.

Please tell me if the MSDOS port works on Windows98 (it's not tested yet).

maybe the DOS-versions of gzip and tar will do it too. gzip can be found at

There also exists a Windows3.1-Version of the Mac-Program Stuffit expander.
