Did it. Regrettably, no improvement. Slightly more checker board.
Any other ideas?
FYI - The ATI Radeon VE 7000 has the capacity to use two(2)
monitors. I do not know if that helps.
A different video card is not an option. This is my wife's
computer, and she needs the existing video card.
PS I thank everyone for all their input and help.
Well, if that didn't help, then something else is additionally broken.
I don't know what. I could dig and figure it out, but I'm not going to
do it. Sorry.
If you have windows on that computer (which I think you do) and that's
windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista (not 95/98/Me), you could try to install
either Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 or VMWare Server (both are freely
available on the internet), create a virtual machine in there, install
DOS and DJGPP in there and work in the VM. That might work (unless
something's broken in those virtualizing products and DJGPP doesn't
work well in there -- I think I tried once but that wasn't extensive
use of DJGPP in a VM, so YMMV).
- use a different IDE or just a plain text editor for editing, use
plain gdb for debugging and compile the code from the command line
(directly, through a script or makefile). I know it can be painful to
give up on a handy IDE and instead use something more primitive, but
it's a possible option. I, for one, rarely use IDEs and debuggers. I
use a powerful text editor, make files (or equivalent scripts) and
manage to figure out most of bugs in newly written code w/o the
debugger. It varies with older code or code written by others.
- entirely different set of tools, something for windows, unless you
absolutely must code for DOS or need direct hardware access. Btw, if
you don't care much about modern C++ and can live in a 16-bit world,
you can download Borland's Turbo C++ 1.01 and use it. RHIDE was
designed after Borland's IDEs of their C/C++ and Pascal compilers for

mine with DOS 7.1. Sometimes, to transfer files I run the DOS drive
as a slave of the Win 2000 drive. Otherwise, they are run
independently. I have DOS 7.1 for the FAT32,. so I do not have to
partition the drive. The problem I know is with the video card. If
blue. I am trying to avoid replacing the video card, for the
computer, with a video card which will probably work very well with RHIDE.
