[ct-user] Upgrade computer strategy

I have used CTWin and CTDos (same CT version) with a CT serial
port network without problems in several contests during the last
two contest seasons. One computer ran CTWin with WinME and
the others ran CTDos with Win98 DOS.

I don't believe movable windows (with the mouse) works in CTWin
with Win98. Please correct me if I'm wrong. It does work with WinXp.
This was an addition to one of the later CTWin versions.

support the DVP card.  So if you are using that, you will still need to run
the DOS version.  Win98SE is a reasonable way to go, although Microsoft may
stop supporting it in another year or two.
