After the install, you need to reboot. I've got to change the install
script to reflect that. 

After CTWIN comes up, make sure you select a code contest and type the
sound command in the callsign field. Try F1 and see if it makes CW
sounds. If the LPT is not keying, there may be something special about
the bios. Keying though a serial port is not supported yet.

I got that agent missing message when I first installed CTWIN, but a
reboot got rid of that. Does the fact that the message showed up at all
mean anything?

I think I've figured out the problem with the DOS side: if I boot the
laptop in Windows then exit to DOS, radio control works. If I boot the
laptop in DOS, radio control doesn't work. I think the BIOS has some
setting that makes that happen - I vaguely remember this years ago,
something to do with laptops with infrared. I have IR disabled in
Windows but if I don't start Windows it doesn't disable that port being
connected to IR, so will have to dig through BIOS.

But still can't get CTWIN to send on LPT1 but getting closer.
