Also, check the autoexec.bat and see if the computer is loading some programs you don't really need. Even with a DOS boot, I believe you can have resident programs in the background.

My contest computer's hard drive bit the dust recently so I used the
"household" PC in the Jubilee contest and discovered a minor glitch with
the second PC. In S&P mode, when I enter a callsign and hit ENTER to drop

The computer is a 750 MHz WIN98 booted to DOS (not a DOS window). TRLog
