Often floppy disc gets corrupted in mail.  I would recommend getting copy
from datcom website with registered login and password. Download into new
directory to avoid what G3SJJ mentioned.

i am sure you will figure out basic operation before field day.

Tim, have you checked NA Config, F2 Paths To Program Files. If
you had prevously separated the files into the different directories ie
NA root, CRT, MTL, OUT, QDF and then downloaded a new
version of NA, it will put all the files in the root directory, the exe file
might still be looking for non existant files. Worth checking.
