There's an OS/2 version of my randomness code available under the <choose- 
your-favourite-license> (eg GPL), you can get it as part of cryptlib, 
ftp://ftp.franken.de/pub/crypt/cryptlib/beta/cl30beta01.zip.  The OS/2 entropy 
gathering code is in misc/rndos2.c, it hasn't been updated for a bit so it may 
need some minor repairs and a coat of new paint.
