Well Phil, 
	I don't mean to sound rude, but it is kinda dumb to be running a
pre-release or even a early-release of ANYTHING that miscrosoft writes.
(Personally I think it is kinda dumb running anything from microsoft, but that
is my opinion.)

	Either install NT4 or scrap the microcrap all together and install
