James you only need look at Microsoft's APM code for about 12 seconds to
understand how many problems it causes. And that is just the start. If you
run a nice clean server with only Microsoft Server Apps on it it "should"
work fine. Considering I can rewrite the entire memory contents of Win 2K
from a C program it is hardly surprising that 2K or NT crashes when any
non-microsoft guru get's his hands onto it.
