win7 and P4's

mc,

My test computer is a P4 1.3 GHz. 384 MB RAM and 32 MB video card. Win7 runs
OK. A little slow of course but adequate for what I'm doing.

Hal.dll trouble

Thanks for the detailed info. I'd be interested to see your boot.ini when
your system is playing up. As I'm sure you would too. I don't know why it is
happening. I doubt boot.ini is changing...
