Sub_title: VIDEO hangs
 

Been using puppy 3.01 on my old panasonic toughbook 71 (P2 300) for a few months, worked great. when firing up an old win program using wine,my video dropped from 1024x768 to 800x600 to run the game. machine hung at that point, rebooted, and now xwin AND xorgwizard wont work.

xwin: just wont start either manager
xorgwizard: goes all the way through to test, then machine hangs.
xvesa: nope..that doesnt work either
bizarre part is, i can run puppy using pfix=ram, grab my ndiswrapper file to get onlien, and video works.. tried re-installing and making a new save file, but problem repeats.

pup 4.01 wont work on this machine..any ideas???

That's strange: I have an old Panasonic CF-25 laptop with about 96 MB of RAM and wine runs just fine (I am using 4.01)
