    Previous post to Operating System Forum had no response. I shall try Applications now.

    The system:

    Dual boot (Red Hat 6.1/Wintendo 98 second edition) overclocked AMD K6III w/128 MB RAM, 16 MB Diamond S540 vid card, Creative Labs audio, CD, etc. Machine has been solid and stable for many months. New software has not been added recently.

    The problem(s):

    Initially had difficulties with dial up. If the machine had been rebooted I found it neccessary to go into Control Panel, click Network, close it, and bingo! I could get a dial up connection. Soooooo, I did a reinstall. Now, in addition to this annoying little problem my sound only runs for about a second then quits. No Winamp tunes will play (MMSYSTEM004 The specified device is already in use. Wait until it is free, and then try again). Reloaded the drivers for the audio card, the wave drivers for my external modem, and Winamp. Shall I delete the win.com file in c:\windows and try to do another reinstall? What's up with the wacky dial up? No bugs were found by my virus checker. Argh.
