I've managed to get 32bfa to work.

The problem seems to revolve around memory management

I use Hurricane very successfully and it appears I need to use their
'Virtual Cache' which provides a dynamic memeory pool both for 32bfa and
their own sector cache which is used for CDRoms etc.

Why 32bfa won't work without it I don't know. Perhaps if their is any Guru
out there who knows the answer they might like to elucidate!

BTW does anyone know the purpose of vfd.386 and vcd.386 in the [386enh]
section of system.ini?
