John, I don't know how large your original file is but I work with one that's
about 170 pages with *tons* of graphics (the final help file is currently just
over 1.5Mb). The only way I can compile is to break down the "make into help"
routines and run them separately. Also, I understand that D2H now suggests that
you not run minimized. My biggest problem is "out of memory" errors.

Hope this helps.
