Hi Roger,

Windows NT/2K/XP are pre-emptively multitasking operating systems. That means
the operating system steals CPU time away from applicaitons so that other
applications can get their fair share of run time.

You should install a 2nd bootable partition on your hard drive so you can boot
to real DOS (6.22) and run NA there.  There is an application note on the
www.K1EA.com web site under the Hints and Kinks section as to how to set this
