: : What does this phrase mean, and where does it come from?

: I think it comes from the north of England and means that something is basically OK.
: "I'll give you £10 for your old shirt". "OK, fair dos".

: Try http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:-Yw6kPSZYx4J:www.phespirit.info/morningtoncrescent/20030616.htm+%22fair+dos%22&hl=en
: for another example.

So that's a fair do and those are fair dos, or does it have to do with MS-DOS? ^_^
