This is just a note to inform you that the WinBoard installer will not
run on my new machine.  Here's the System Information summary:

Page File C:\pagefile.sys               

Also, manually opening the installer .exe with WinZip and trying to
open one of the cab files returns the error message:

WinZip cannot open <filename> because it is not in the standard
Microsoft CAB format (as defined in mid-1998).  The "signature bytes"
required by the Microsoft CAB specification is missing.

I will try to compile the source when I get a chance.  I assume that
will work, since WinBoard itself will run.  I copied the exe over from
another machine and it does run.
