That's the problem, "99SE to install because it doesn't recognize the
"partition" type."

How much is your time worth messing around will all the little gotchas just
like that one?

$150 to microsoft is no big deal for me to pay for windows and have
Protel99SE install correctly. I tried OS2 back in the day (this is probably
in our archives) and thought it was great except for this that and the other
thing.

I'm tired of screwing around with OSes, and after committing to something,
learn I can't print to this, or install that. Fuh-get-about-it.
