Obviously (or maybe not so) a problem with my 98SE settings. I just tried it on my XP partition and it loaded quickly and worked straight away. At least I now know how it should load when I try 98SE again. That is if I can tear myself away ---it is very good ! (Classic Rock at the moment)
Still a problem with the radio on 98SE. I found that it did eventually load after about 4 minutes and sometimes work. It seems like a confict but I don't know what with. It works great on the XP partition.
