If you need to send CW or control your radio, then it does not work. If you 
would just like to log a contest, then it works great. NT needs to control the 
ports since it is a true multi-tasking OS. I use NT on my laptop and have 
tried to get TR to run in a DOS box and control the radio...bzzzzt. NT does 
not give an option to dedicate port control to a DOS window. On the other hand 
IBM OS/2 does let you define a DOS box to control the ports, but you had 
better have a fast machine to keep it from sending choppy CW.

My solution is to use System Command from V Communications to define a pure 
DOS boot record. At power up I can choose to boot to NT, or DOS 7.0.
