That is the name of a protocol included in the MIT PC-IP distribution.
It allows creation of virtual DOS volumes on Unix systems, but 1) it
doesn't allow read/write sharing of those volumes, and 2) it requires
Unix source code and kernel modifications to install. I've never used
it on a PC, but I've used Unices sharing disks via the same protocol,
and there were some unloveable aspects about spinup-spindown...

I don't know how you get the source for the Unix side. I'd start
with the contact for PC-IP at MIT (the Microcomputer Office), and
see if they can help/redirect you.
