No. DOS is on the CD and TR is on a FAT32 on the hard drive.

My first thought was also some sort of sleep mode. I went into the
BIOS and looked for sleep options and could find none.
Looking at, hearing things more closely, it appears to be the CD
drive. When I type a call in the S&P field and hit return, sending
doesn't start for about four seconds when I can see the hard drive
light come on and see the CD drive light come on momentarily and hear
the CD drive start to turn.
So, on a whim, I opened the CD drive and tried again. After letting
computer sit for half hour, now when I type a call in the S&P field
and hit return, sending is immediate. And, don't need the ^ in S&P
exchange--the initial 5 sends as a 5 instead of a 6.
Problem solved? I hope so. Don't have an explanation. Fingers are crossed.
Thanks Mark, thanks Tree.
