Configuring Software for Programable HA Systems?

The best bet for getting DOS software to run with Windows 95 is to not
load the GUI at all.  In people terms:  When you boot the computer,
right after you see the Starting Windows 95... message, press the F8
key.  You will get a menu of options.  Select "Command Prompt Only" (I
think it's option 5 or 6).  This will boot you directly into DOS
(unofficially version 7).  Run your software from there.  You lose the
pretty graphical interface, but it clears up a lotta problems.

Here's a fun fact:  If a 16-bit application crashes in Windows 95,
it's possilble that it will take the system with it.  So much for the
claims of being "crash-proof."
