Hi Matthew,

Thanks for the feedback.  I am using the pre6 patch from the Epia Wiki 
site, maybe it is different to the one on the Unichrome site.  Will have 
to check it when I get home tonight (no internet at work).  Atleast I 
know that someone has it working.  Nothing worse than trying to get it 
to work and finding that no one has it working.

Appreciate the reply :-)
