Received email from Steve a few minutes ago. He had me scan the disks for
errors (none found), uninstall and reinstall, but it's still crashing. I did
find that shutting off Norton Crash Guard would allow it to crash peacefully.
Steve said he'd send a new set of disks if this didn't work. I HOPE it was just
some problem in the installation disks and not some quirk that won't let it run
on my system. I keep wondering about conflicts from some other software.

Because of the error message you are getting, I would guess that something
is not being loaded properly. Have you tried re-installing the program from
disk??? It could be that a file got corrupted during the install process.
