Good point, and to call the dos prompt "crufty" in Win98 is being very
kind (the whole Windows "OS" on top of the real OS, MS-DOS, is really
showing its age). As I mentioned to Brett, I'll try it later on my
wife's machine which I built only recently. Maybe it'll represent a a
cleaner Win98 install.
Thanks for your ideas and time.
