<<< I can't get Geowrite to run

a 1MB SRAM) so I'm wondering if I can get away with just installing the
necessary files. Anyone know which ones they are?

You should be able to make geowrite to run on the Ogo, but you have to add
some system libraries (ie files which are in Geopubl\system...).
I have GeoWrite set up and running on the Zoomer. I don't remember the
necessary libraries, but you could start a try and error until it works.
Here is the list of libs in the Zoomer system folder :

BITMAP.GEO
CELL.GEO
CHART.GEO
COLOR.GEO
UI.GEO
GROBJ.GEO
IMPEX.GEO
MATH.GEO
PARSE.GEO
SPOOL.GEO
RULER.GEO
SPELL.GEO
SPLINE.GEO
SSHEET.GEO
STYLES.GEO
TEXT.GEO
PALMUI.GEO
SSMETA.GEO
ANSIC.GEO
BOOK.GEO
BORLANDC.GEO
CARDS.GEO
COMPRESS.GEO
CONFIG.GEO
DATEPICK.GEO
HWRROM.GEO
MOTIF.GEO
NET.GEO
PEN.GEO
PQDB.GEO
SERIAL.GEO
SHELL.GEO
SOUND.GEO
STREAM.GEO
SWAP.GEO
ZOOMER.GEO

Note that this includes the libs of the Zoomer + some libs for
GeoCalc. In my own opinion, you will need :
Text, Styles, Spell, Ruler, Spool, Impex, Grobj, Ui, Color, Bitmap
which makes 775 Ko. You may get rid of some of them to fit your
Sram size...

NOTE : DO NOT OVERWRITE AN EXISTING OMNIGO LIBRARY ! KEEP THE GENUINE
OMNIGO LIBRARIES.

<<<And do I have to set up
a disk swap?>>>

Everything should be Ok, except if you are working on "big" documents.
The memory size on these machines is very limited...

I hope this helps.

Philippe.
