Re: AVTS software and Win98

All 100 units shipped to El Paso County each have a copy of Windows 98 Second Edition just released just a few weeks ago.
All units have a full Standard install.  Unnecessary short cuts have been deleted from the desk top. All particular unique drivers, i.e.. monitor, video, elo, etc..., have been placed in a folder in the C: drive labeled drivers. And that is all.
If Vancouver has confusion it will be primarily that they have just not asked any questions...
Also, Jeff was shipped a new unit yesterday overnight and he will get it today Friday not Monday or Tuesday.
Just to let you know...
