Hi Per, I cannot get the above link to work.  It says not found.

    Hi Lee, If booting from a Win drive  on the first instance of needing to 
load the Turbo toolkit check for the     existence of a file on the boot device 
called "TTKLoaded", or similar. If the file does not exist create it and     
load TurboTK. If the file is found to exist do not load the toolkit. At the end 
of the session tidy up the boot     device by deleting this file. Not elegant 
but practical.

Hi Duncan,

But what if during the session the QL crashes?  The TTKLoaded file will remain 
on the Win drive, and the next time the QL session is started, it won't work 
properly.  A nice idea though.  Another way of doing this is to use environment 
variables, which I use myself.  The details are here:
