What is the freeware you're using? It may be we could take advantage of it,

Have you considered NT? It costs a little more, but what is the cost of
multiple reboots every day? We're trying to standardize on NT here, for
reasons of security (95 has absolutely no true security, as you probably
know) and stability.

Although I have 95 at home, I don't have much time for it on a business
sytem. I can't believe 98 will be good for anything othere than a home
system, either.  JMHO
