Here is the response I got from Dale Larson concerning using the Cyberboard
in a multiuser environment.  I thought the rest of the mailing list might
find it interesting.

It's certainly possible. In fact, right now, people can use MSoft's
freeware program to do it using the application sharing functionality. This
be done without any changes to CyberBoard.

I make every effort to make sure files will upgrade when loaded into
CyberBoard. To date this has always been the case. That being said I can't
guarantee this will always be the case. ;)
