Howdy, William and All:

I upgraded my machine to NT 4.0 about 3 months ago. I had a
Pentium (not sure what MHz) with 32 MB RAM. I am using the
same programs as you are, for the most part. Everything worked
fine with the exception of Photoshop--my machine crashed repeatedly
when I worked on a file larger than 5 MB until I upgraded to
64 MB. Now my machine only crashes when I fill up my 2 gig hard
disk (which happens way too often, I must remember to delete those
"working files").
