On the link to the MSAgent/SAPI downloads at the Microsoft site someone
posted here a few days ago, it said Win95/98/Me/2000/XP as the minimum
requirements. I downloaded all the stuff, installed it, but no go. Might
be 98lite interfering or something else entirely, who knows...

To add insult to injury, not only does it not work correctly, you can't
uninstall it either. Bah!

After a quick look into the english.lang and deutsch.lang files, it
seems that the German is lagging somewhat behind the English (336
entries vs. 400). So *if* and *when* I get to this, I'll probably also
bring deutsch.lang up to date, but as I said, that's a big IF.
