Recently, I had installed Geoworks 1.2 on my NEC Multispeed HD Laptop. This
laptop is of the XT variety. Everytime I start Geoworks using GEOS.BAT, it
initializes 5 to 6 modules and then freezes everything up, including the hard
drive. I have tried setting the setver command to DOS 5.0, and I have modified
the config.sys file to NDO specifications. I have made sure that the amount of
free memory is above 520k, and the video driver is cga mono. I have gone as
far as installing MS DOS 3.2, the original OS that was installed on the machine
and the problem still occurs. I had absolutely no problems installing Geoworks,
in fact I had installed it on my Pentium Desktop and ran it without problems.
Perhaps someone has had a similar problem.
