JC>a .SYS  file, if  you make  your own  device drivers.  With the linker that
JC>comes with QB 4.5,  you don't need EXE2BIN  anymore. You just have  to link

JC>.COM file, but not the .EXE file. There are restrictions that apply to .COM

  Hmmm . . . the /BI option is not mentioned in the QB manual, nor in
  Ethan Winer's book, but it IS displayed as an option when you type
  LINK /HELP.  If QB can't use this option, then what is it for?  Can
  the QB linker be used with other languages?  If so, how is it
  different from the other linkers?
