In a previous article, web!ingen.cu!scorpio.cu!carmas at NET.BIO.NET (Carlos I. Armas) says:

Can't tell for sure from the discription if my suggestion will be germane
but every problem I've ever seen with Stacker resulted from the disk name
switch that is installed in config.sys.  If you're swapping the drive names
try getting rid of the swap.  I work all the time with a disk called D: and
I'm quite happy with it.  Even if that isn't the problem, do it any :-)
