    No prob. However if you ever have to find a solution for this problem and it doesn't come with a patch, look for a program called CPUKiller - it loads up your CPU indefinately or for a set period of time and allows old programs to work on new CPU's. Very handy tool for old programs.

    PS 5 seconds isn't too much time ;)

    What's nice about it is that it can be command line driven - that error only happens when it's initializing so run it for 10 seconds and then exit and now you've got a normal system running again. I use it at work everyday for an old 16-bit app - it's literally flawless.

    good on 2k I suppose. since the dos virtual machine runs seperately from the gui vm. that crashes and you dont get a kernel panic.
    nice software :cool:
