Cool Dragonriders of Pern

There was a game I played on my ATARI PC back in the early 80's called Dragonriders of Pern. Does anyone know if that was ever available in DOS.
Although the ATARI may have been DOS-based (I'm old I forget things)

http://www.mobygames.com/game-group/...-of-pern-games

It's of course possible that Mobys is wrong .....

[Edit]
HotU say the have a Dos release of the game:

Yes, and I have a copy of that. Ran it - works - but haven't played it.

Pern cries out for a game with realtime strategy, resource collection, micromanagement and battle-sequences. Less of this knights of camelot InSPACE!

Sorry, but no. Abandonia doesn't concern itself with non-gaming literature, and we don't want to piss off more people than is unavoidable.
