     Weelll, yesterday was my "D day" parade. I was wandering around my
     neighborhood showing everyone the W finger sign. The guy who sells
     fish asked: What is that stands for man? I replied: Don't you know? W
     is for Win. He said: I know that man, but you don't have to remind us.
     We don't like winter, around here...

     Anyway now that this is past, I have another challenge for you list (I
     mean Frank) Now that I am a DOS/Win expert (!?!)... I want to put my
     fingers inside the hood and add more memory to my 16 Meg-486 machine.

     I got a couple of XR-SIMM4MX32/6 32Mb memory Ram chips, and free
     sockets for them. What is the procedure? After putting them in place,
     how/where do I tell DOS that I have them?

     And another one: My motherboard can read only about 500 Mb of
     harddrive, but my disk actually is about 720. I know that you can
     cheat the machine and partition the disk in a way that DOS actually
     sees the remaining of that space as a second hard drive. Procedure

     And another one: How easy/complicated is to install a SCSI card? What
     I mean by this is again where/how do I have to instruct the DOS to see
     it? or is the Win 95' plug and play ability to pick it up on the fly,
     and read it next time you turn the machine on?


     "Now make your move Augustus! - Ask her out to dinner. Stop by the
     Aquarium supply store and have her pick out the fish she'd like to
     eat. Offer to cook it for her. - Try to get admission to a hospital
     operating theatre. Particularly exciting are gallbladder operations.
     Attend the opera. Bring popcorn. The rest, my dear Dr. Augustus and
     Adela, is up to you. "
