I think it's difficult! You not only have to add a TCP/IP protocol stack
but you have also to make a lot of modifications as several system call
does not work under DOS. Anyway, the FTP Software enterprise (
sold a protocol stack for DOS (named PC/TCP) equipped with the
developement libraries. I don't know if the package is yet sold.
In this sense, I can give you several informations as I've used the
package. But for Kaffe porting under DOS ...... good luck :((
