Im wanting to put the winNT service edition on a PPro200 Lotus Notes
server here, but i noticed it has a backup agent that also runs at Low
priority, and i don't want to stuff up the backup process.

OS/2 also has low, normal, and high priorities, but within each there
are 64 (or is it 32?) sub levels of priority. I assume NT is the same.
So long as the backup agent is a higher low than the lowest low at
which rc5 runs i should be fine.

So how do i find the full priority of threads under winNT (or does NT
really have only 4 priorities)?
