Ahh, you must be the person who posted a bug last night but forgot to
sign a return address! Otherwise I would have answered you personally.
This is a known problem which we plan to fix (soon). Here is a
temporary workaround (thanks Mark!):
| There is a bug in SGI's OpenGL for Windows. It uses the CPUID instruction
| which is not enabled in Cyrix processors by default. You need to find a
| utility which will enable CPUID in your processor. The one I use for Win95
