     Thanks for your response; I have Red Baron II which
will operate in XP with a couple of fixes but the
Sidewinder FF Pro joystick that I have, while functional,
cannot be programmed due to driver incompatibility. XP
just won't load the software disc. I have already
received help here telling me there is basically nothing
that can be done about that owing to the differences in
the nature of the operating systems. I had heard that
partitioning the hard drive will allow me to use the disc
and any other 95/98 applications that are a little
squirrely sometimes when they are "patched" rather than
being allowed to run in their native format. Thanks for
verifying that for me.
