Okay, I understand all the stuff that is going wrong it all happend to
me. What it means by file to patch is the path file it self. But when
you type in the name of the patch file it gives you a sharing violation.
So. This is what I would do, make 2 copies of the patch in the source
dir. run patch <args> < <patchfile> then give it the name of the other
copy of the patch files when it prompt you for "File to Path:"
Now when I did this all the hunks failed but it did at least try to
patch it. It's the same problem with the dos patch file as well so......
It's all useless. I give up on patches under win95 I try out the patch
prog then manually enter in everything else (which is a huge *swear*
