        The stake computer specialist can request it from Salt Lake and should have
        the forms and phone number, or try Family History Support. You will need to
        report to SL how many computers you install it on for licensing purposes. We
        have W2K running on a Pentium 233 with 96 megs and it is functional but
        slow. With 64 MB it will be marginal and probably not even worth the attempt
        if the processor is slower than ours. You can also request a Win 98 disk
        which may be a better choice if you need to keep that machine.

          Boy, that's out in the boonies. I've been there. A good hour's drive out
          of Hilo. As Gary said, call SLC. I'd suggest hitting zero for the operator
          and asking for "local computer support". You can get Win2K or Win98. In
          the case of this machine, I'd recommend Win98. 64MHz is way too small and a
          Pentium Pro is probably around 90MHz as I have an old church computer in my
          collection that's like that. Worse, the hard drive is probably glacieral in
          speed. I think as low as I've gotten is a 200MHz with 128MB.

          Personally, I'd suggest they look to see what they can get. Companies are
          getting rid of better computers then that. 200MHz should be an easy find.
          With MLS requiring 500MHz or better, an old administrative computer may be
          available.

          I am helping the Waimea, Hawaii FHC with some computer setup. I understand
          that for FHC computers I can get a Win 2K license and/or CD from Salt Lake.
          Who do I contact for this?
          I am also concerned that perhaps the computer we are looking to upgrade may
          not handle Win 2K very well. It is currently running Win 95. If I remember
          correctly it is a Pentium Pro with 64 MB. I don't know what speed.

            Tech tip: Open the network neighborhood and browse to the server, share and
            directory to find the IGI and IGI addendum. You'll know when you've reached
            the right folder when you see a bunch of folders with 2-letter names.

            Now check and see if the address shows the full URL or just the directory.
            If it's just the directory, click on Tools, Folder Options, View tab and
            check off "Display the full path in the address bar". You should now be
            able to see the URL to this directory. (You might need to close the window
            and browse again, I'm not sure about how quickly it updates.)

            Simply highlight the full URL in the address bar and do a Control-C (copy).
            You can now paste it into TempleReady's setup. That will get you an
            accurate URL free from typos. If you find you can't browse to that
            directory using your current login, then you'll need to fix that first.

              Gayle and Susan are going out of business. I forget whether Local Unit
              Support is already gone, or soon will be gone. For clerk issues, you call
              Clerk Support, for FHC issues call the 6044 number, and for FHC tech issues
              call the Global Support people.

                Hopefully tomorrow after work and voting I'll have time to run over.
