The foxstart patch is to slow down your fast computer for a few seconds to allow the foxpro to start. Once it is started the foxpro problem should be gone. I think he has a mouse video drivers conflict. Win 98 just gives you a generic driver when it is installed for the mouse and it conflicts with ATI cards. Insalling a proper driver for the mouse may fix this. The fact he opened and closed the Kennedy projects without a crash says to me the foxstart patch is working.
