Peter,

Have you tried starting up interlink on the PC because it will probably work
while your Ogo is "locked up"

What is happening is the following:

1) initial boot is loading the "HP" screen
2) the autoexec.bat runs upto and including the intersvr.exe command
3) inter-server starts but you never see it because the screen needs a
driver.

Try typing "Alt-F4" when the Ogo is "locked up" this should allow it to boot
normally. If you actually want to see whats going on you have to install
one of the "dosmode" drivers available. I use Omniswp.exe, but I don't have
the source address or the developer's name handy.

Try these two things, I mentioned, (1) running the PC side to see if it
functions, then (2) pressing Alt-F4 to quit intersvr.exe

Good luck,
Ken
