> ^ Subject: Running GAP on MSDOS systems

A couple of weeks ago I posted to this group the problems I was experiencing
running GAP in our lab full of PC's on a Novell network. The problem turned
out to be completely unrelated to the use of a network. It turns out that
GAP is unable to run correctly if EMM386 is in the CONFIG.SYS file. The
GO32 extender is incompatible with this extended memory management tool. A
warning should perhaps be placed in the documentation warning users of this
conflict. I have removed this device driver from the PC's in my lab and now
GAP runs perfectly (at, of course, 386-25 speed...).
