Since the older software is still under the older license do you guys
think it would be safe for me to re-distribute the software on my own site?

On a, sort of, unreleated note here.  Did anyone notice that NTFSDOS

but that has always worked out fine.  Can't find it on the "new"
sysinternals site.
