[Snip W95 stuff]

	A better option even than the boot disk is to have multiple boots
set up through your config.sys.  If anybody wants to know how to do that,
send me private mail and I'll let you know.

	Same goes for mindflayers.  Pick off their slaves first.  The
Illithid themsleves don't do any damage, just stun.

	Keep in mind that lightning has almost no effect.  That includes
the Wand's of Lightning you can buy on Toril.  I was lucky enough to find
a Wand of Fire on a ship.  That helped clear off the undead.

>Incidently, I've never made it to the very end.

	I was going to give up because I didn't know how to use the map.
Played for a week, got my character (a mage) up to 11th level, and was about
to call it quits when I discovered that maps get converted to point of
interest in the nav map.  After that little discovery, I finished the game
in less than four hours.  By this time though, my party was pretty well
decked out, so combat became fairly easy.

ps.  All this talk is making me want to play it again... (:
