True, but for huge patches like DG and Oasis, hand patching becomes so
much of a task that it becomes easier to just patch the source THEN look
over the code. If you really need to patch anything, grab a UN*X shell
and use it to do the patching. Many people have shells through thier
ISP, or can get one through one of the many free shell providers, so
this shouldnt be _TOO_ hard.
