                           Product Upgrade

                   We've Improved Upon the Best ...
                 CrossDOS (TM) Version 6 Professional

Plymouth, MI, USA -- CONSULTRON has announced that it will be shipping
CrossDOS (TM) Version 6 Professional on April 3, 1995.  CrossDOS has been
enhanced to better support MS-DOS formatted floppies and hard disks.
Here's a quick list of our ``New and Improved'' features:

Faster Floppy Access
    We've  completely rewrote the floppy device driver (mfm.device) to
    speed up reads and writes approximately two times.

Faster Hard Disk Writes
    We've  optimized CrossDOS disk caching and disk access routines to
    speed up writes to MS-DOS hard disks approximately ten times.

Partition MS-DOS Hard Drives
    Using  our  QuickPrep utility, you can create a `true' MS-DOS hard
    disk partition entirely on your Amiga.  You are no longer required
    to preformat the disk on an MS-DOS computer first.

Read and Write MS-DOS Disk Images in Files
    CrossDOS  now supports Bridgeboard MakeAB and JLink files, PC-Task
    hardfiles and AtOnce/GoldenGate diskfiles.

Network Compatible
    We've improved CrossDOS to be compatible with most Amiga networks.

Improved Hard Disk Configuration and Diagnostic Utilities
    We've  made  substantial  enhancements  to many CrossDOS utilities
    including the hard disk configuration and diagnostic programs.

Full-time Technical Support
    We  still  provide  full-time  technical support for our products.
    Tech  support is available Monday through Friday between the hours
    of 10 AM and 6 PM EST.

Runs on any Amiga
    CrossDOS  will  run  on  any  Amiga with 512K or more of RAM using
    AmigaDOS 2.0 or higher.

High-density drives for sale:
