[NA-User] NA clock and XP system clock

I use XP Home and find that I can not get NA to operate properly at all with
it. The clock acts as you describe and the cw keying is useless. The only
thing I have found that works is to set up another partition and dual boot
so you can run NA from a true dos prompt.
