re: kaleidescopes
I have made many kaleidescopes of stained glass (not in school), and found
it to be quite a study in color, textures, and varying degrees of
transparency or translucency. Some combinations and placements work and
some don't. Could you use colored and textured glass with ground and
bound edges as a manipulative explorative study?

This file contains information about problems that may occur while you are
running Windows for Workgroups Setup or when you are using terminate-and-
stay-resident (TSR) programs or drivers with Windows for Workgroups or
If you are using a TSR or if you encounter problems setting up Windows for
Workgroups, read this document BEFORE you run Setup again.


This section includes notes on specific system configurations that may
prevent Setup from installing Windows for Workgroups successfully. A
possible solution to each problem is provided.

If you are using a hardware or software product listed here, follow the
proposed recommendations before you run Setup.

Network Cards
If you are using one of the following network cards, you must run Setup
with the /i option:

Novell(R)/Anthem NE1500
Novell/Anthem NE2100
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) AM2100
Microdyne Exos(R) 105

To do this, type the following at the MS-DOS prompt:

setup /i

MS-DOS(R) Screen Savers
If you are using an MS-DOS screen saver, you should turn it off before
running Setup. These screen savers can cause problems when running Setup.

COMPAQ(R) Computer with MS-DOS Version 5.0 or later and EGA or VGA Display
If you are using the upgrade version of Microsoft MS-DOS 5.0 or later,
check your
CONFIG.SYS file to make sure the following drivers (if present) appear in
this order:


Note: If you are using the COMPAQ version of MS-DOS 5.0, HIMEM.EXE is used
in place of HIMEM.SYS and CEMM.EXE is used in place of EMM386.EXE.

If ANSI.SYS is loaded before HIMEM.SYS or EMM386.EXE (or if you are using
COMPAQ MS-DOS 5.0 before HIMEM.EXE or CEMM.EXE), Setup may restart your
system before Windows for Workgroups is installed. Also, if you are using
the DOS=HIGH,UMB command line to load MS-DOS into upper memory, loading
EMM386.EXE (or CEMM.EXE) before loading ANSI.SYS will create the maximum
amount of upper memory space on a COMPAQ computer.

AT&T(R) Safari Computer
If you have an AT&T Safari computer, you cannot maintain two versions of
Windows on your system. You must upgrade over your previous version of
Windows, if you have one. If you set up Windows for Workgroups version
in its own directory, it will not use the special drivers required to run
on the Safari

Displays That May Require Driver Updates with Windows for Workgroups

Certain third-party display drivers designed for Windows version 3.0 can
cause problems with Windows for Workgroups version 3.11. The most serious
problem is a system failure while you are running Windows for Workgroups
Setup. If you encounter this problem, run Custom Setup, and then select
one of the standard display types, such as VGA, that is provided with
Windows for Workgroups.

With other Windows version 3.0 display drivers, Windows for Workgroups may
be set up successfully, but TrueType fonts may not appear correctly on

An updated driver may be available in the Windows Driver Library (WDL) or
from your display vendor or manufacturer. For information on obtaining
from the WDL, see the "Getting Drivers from the Windows Driver Library
(WDL)" section later in this document.

Windows version 3.0 drivers for the following display adapters may cause

* ATI Graphics Ultra, Vantage, and Mach32

NOTE: These adapters are 8514/a-compatible and run well
with the 8514/a driver provided with Windows for Workgroups.

* DGIS display adapters (Direct Graphics Interface Standard)
from Graphic Software Systems, including the following:

NEC(R) MultiSynch Graphics Engine (MGE)
Zenith(R) Z-649
HP(R) IGC-10, IGC-20
GSS 1000 Series

NOTE: Some DGIS-based adapters are TIGA-compatible and
run well when used with the appropriate TIGACD.EXE
MS-DOS driver and with the TIGA driver provided with
Windows for Workgroups.

* HP Ultra VGA (versions earlier than 1.4 only)
* IBM(R) Image Adapter/A
* Matrox MG Series/M-WIN Series
* Palettized VGA 640x480, 16-color (provided with Windows
Multimedia Extensions version 1.0)
* Radius(R) SVGA MultiView

* RGDI (Renaissance Graphics Device Interface) display
adapters from Appian, Inc., including the following:
Appian Rendition II, IIe, II/XE, and III
Appian GV1024
Decpc 433

- S3 adapters, including the following:
Orchid Fahrenheit 1280
Diamond Stealth VRAM

Using the ATI Mach 32 Video Adapter
Before you run Windows Setup, make sure the Mach 32 adapter is set up
correctly. In the Mach 32 Install program, choose the Set Power-Up
Configuration option. Set the VGA Memory Size to half the RAM
available on the Mach 32 adapter. Since most Mach 32 adapters come with
1 MB of RAM, the appropriate setting is usually 512K.

Using Stacker(R)
If you are using Stacker to compress your hard disk, you need to take the
following steps before setting up Windows for Workgroups.

* If you want to use a swap file with Windows for Workgroups, you must
set up the swap file on the uncompressed drive. When you set up
you can leave at least 1 MB of disk space uncompressed for storing
files. To leave enough space for the swap file, it is recommended that
amount of uncompressed disk space equal at least twice the amount of
system memory. For example, if your system has 4 MB of memory, you
leave at least 8 MB of disk space uncompressed.

If Stacker is already set up on your system and there is not enough
uncompressed disk space for a swap file, you can run the STAC utility
provided with Stacker to increase the amount of uncompressed disk
For more information, see your Stacker documentation.

* If you are using Stacker version 2.0 or later, Windows for Workgroups
Setup modifies your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files. When Setup
finishes making the modifications, it displays a message notifying you
of the modifications. If you have used Stacker to swap your startup
when you restart your system Stacker will ask whether you want to
to the new version of the CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT file. It is
recommended that you update.

If you are using a version of Stacker earlier than 2.0, you may need to
modify your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files yourself. For more
information, see the following topic, "Modifying Your CONFIG.SYS and
AUTOEXEC.BAT Files Yourself."

* For best performance, do not use SMARTDrive to cache the compressed
You only need to cache the uncompressed drive. You can include options
the SMARTDRV.EXE line of your CONFIG.SYS file to specify which drives

For example, if the Stacker swap utility swaps drives C and D, so that
is compressed and D is uncompressed, you would include the following
in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:

c:\windows\smartdrv.exe c- d+

For more information about swap files and using SMARTDrive, see
your Windows for Workgroups documentation.
