Re: Response very slow

    I don't know what that would do if you made your main harddrive fat32.  It
might make all the others fat32 as well. Not sure about this at all just
speculating because if you formated your main drive for example, the others go
away.  I personally haven't seen a dos program that won't run on fat32, I no
that you can't run ntfs which includes the winNT through the xp family on fat32
without reformatting.  you'd probably no more about your doss programs than I
would.I know ms-dos prompt and telnet and ftp have no problems under fat32.
Sinse you have particians, You  might be able to move where your virtual memory
is.  That's under controlpannel->system->performance settings.  In any event,
the double file systems may explain your problem.
