Sally- Thanks for the "heads up" on being hidden. I don't know how I got in "Read Only" status, but I didn't do it.
I don't use Win 2k. Is it possible that the patch installation requires full administrative rights, and you are not set up that way?
FWIW, there are some minor differences in Dos floppy commands between NT-4 and Win9x which caused certain older PKware zip files to not open properly on NT4 based systems. If you are using old PKware-not Winzip, you might check the PKware site to see if that info still exists. Or just download a modern zipper. Good luck, John
