I was wondering if it [XGAP] ready yet to install on a DOS running GAP.
If not, do you know when?

XGAP is only available on UNIX workstations under X Windows.
We are working on a window handler for MS Windows,
but it is too early to say when this will be available.

Bruce Merz continued

Also, are the packages Vector Enumeration, ANU Sq,
and NQ going to be available for DOS?

It is probably not too difficult to port the Vector Enumerator to DOS
(maybe that has already happened Steve?). But the ANU SQ resp. the NQ
use the VE resp. GAP to solve subtasks, and the mechanism to call those
programs is UNIX specific. The same is true for the mechanism that makes
the VE, SQ, and NQ programs available from within GAP, as described in
the manual. (All in all it is probably much easier to install Linux or
FreeBSD on your PC ;-)
