Anyway: the limitation under HP-UX was also a operating system limit, but
SAS provided a experimantal feature to use multi-file libraries. Each of
that libs was only 2 GB, but the whole logical SAS library could be bigger
than that. Maybe there is something like that also for Win 98.
The documentation about that thing is something in the TS-files on the SAS
web-site. On HP-UX, SAS 6.12 that worked nice - maybe something like that
is implemented in V8 ??
