After every contest, this must be the most common question that Dave has
to answer!  He must get tired of this, so I'll save him the trouble ....

In my NA Manual, in "Section 1 - General Information", under "Computer
Hardware Requirements", it says "NA is designed to run on MS-DOS
computers using Disk Operating System (DOS) version of 3.0 or later"

Running NA in a DOS window, does not guarantee NA will work correctly
(yes, it may work in one computer just fine, but it may not work in
