Hi

I don't really see TOO much of a problem with the OS/2 software.  I am
currently running Warp 3 on a 100 MHz 486 and on a 350 MHz Pentium II with
64 MB of RAM and a 20GB hard disc.  It clips along on the latter!  You need
to update the drivers for the large disc which is a bit tricky but not
impossible.  Free stuff is available on the web.  Relatively recent printer
drivers for lasers are available.  I've had a bit of trouble with graphics
printing, but that too can be fixed.

I haven't been able to get Warp 4 going, which is a pity as it's networking
etc is way better.

Our system is very stable and does what it was originally designed to
do.  I suppose the biggest lack is of USB support.  We backup onto
removable hard discs and then carry them to a Windows machine to write CD's
or DVD's.

Hil
