Hi brian and thanks for information. I tried it but the program requires a
386 processor. The DOS emulation program emulates up to a 286. This
Handheld PC is an intermediate device between a laptop and a palm type
device. It uses a MIPS R4000 64 bit processor at 80 Mhz. The operating
system is windows CE Version 2.0.
The help is appreciated! thanks brian, 73, patrick n2oeq
