Heh, no. Guess I better look into how to use them. Thanks!

Yes, other systems I have with 9.0 and 9.5 all work ok with 6.5.26.
I don't think it's the OS version though. I checked the original disk with a low-spec R5K (so the CPU wouldn't
be a problem) and it still wouldn't start. Wierd. The orig disk uses 6.5.4m.

Alias 11 looks much like that on startup, asking which app one wishes to use.

Of PA? I think I have some way older than 7, or at least the O2 I'm dealing with appears to have a license
for V1 and V4, aswell as 8.0 and 8.5. All the systems seem to have a fair mix of older license entries. Mostly
though, the older sw versions are not installed, except for their having both Maya 1.5 and 2.0, in some cases
3.0. Just one of them has Maya 6.0, and then there's an O2 with a full Avid setup, an Octane with Jaleo (bags
of data on this one, stuff for all sorts of big-name movies), an O2 Studio Bundle config, and a few others with
Alias/VizPaint2D/Composer but not Maya.
I even have an Indy with Maya 1.0.
Can't find the sw source yet though; some of the docs/examples were
never put on so it would be nice to flesh it out properly. Anyone have a Maya 1.0 CD I could borrow?
