To my amazement, mine works perfectly in a full-screen DOS box under 
Win98SE. This includes running LPT control and keying for my Top Ten SO2R 
box and managing four COM ports. I've use both 10.55 and 10.58 this way 
with nary a problem. I do make sure that there are no other Windows apps 
running when I do this, including virus checkers. Watch out for the crap 
like RealPlayer that likes to run from your Task Bar automatically. Kill 
anything that hides down there in the right bottom of the bar and promises 
to "help" you by making programs "start faster." These are invariably 
resource hogs.
