Thanks for the help. I finally figured out that I could cd into a 
directory (for example "Program Files") by issuing "cd Pr*". I will try 
the quotes next time. Anyway, when I finally got it to start, all I got 
was a splash screen and freeze with a bunch of error messages about 
keyboard and x11drv. But I got a message from another user and I am 
trying to send him the error logfile; so maybe we will get somewhere. 
Thanks again.
