I'm still hoping that I've done something wrong somewhere, and that NO
is bootable from an extended partition. With this list's and the OCP
Forum's help, I did finally manage to install a bootable A2 on that
very same partition.

I love a challenge - but I do know when to quit - eventually! ;)

WoW! I sure appreciate the goodwill and support you demonstrate with
all the advice and URLs.

The Plugin ETH Oberon for Windows must be along the same lines as the
OSX A2 incarnation I installed on my wife's IMac.

I wish that I could say that I'm an avid Windows user and
supporter. Although I have an NTFS partition running XP on this
machine, I rarely ever use the OS - some 20 years now I suppose.

That being said, I try never to burn any bridges, and to never say
"never" ;D

The other day I did DL the "Unix/Linux etc: JVM version" of GPCP. So
it appears that I'm on the right track ;) I'm also looking a Modula-2

I've been following your presence in various Newsgroups, Lists, and
Forums and have wondered about the ARM processors, and their
prevalence / usage. I should Google that - when I have NO up and
running ;)

Thanks again for all the great recommendations. Your message _will_ be
archived here!
