my guess would be that you have to view the .patch, and manually change
things. + means add that line, - means take that line away, and ! means
change that line (you will see what to when you scroll down, where it has a
! and the changed version of that line).

however, i have stumbled over a patch command for dos, i havent tried it
out yet, as i run under linux, but you might want to have a look:

       unicies, (including Linux) this is already available.  For DOS, you
       I don't know where a windows 95/nt version of patch resides, but the
       DOS version should execute just fine.  If you want to compile your own
       version of patch, get it from

hope this helps some :)
