Hi  Per your auth disk issue, Bruce,,
I  had  listened to a program discussing screen readers last July where a
representative from F S  hinted at the  possibilit really    tending to
suggest  that  the authorization disk might be problematic after installing
JAWS 6 *first*.
For Access 32  users, that is  one   huge   huge issue if others find they
cannot use their auth disks  if  6 is installed first.
I called F S and asked what would happen if one installed JAWS  6 on a
machine and wanted to add for some reason  an  earlier version later.
Bruce, please let us  know what you eventually are able to do with the auth
disk from earlier versions on that machine at work.
