Yep - I have this problem also and also the same solution :

You are right. This totally sucks !

If you run Qseeme (CU-seeme clone under Linux) then there is no problem.

Then again UNix networking is the tops.
Alternatively MS networking is the pits (just my uninformed opinion).

Other problems under W95 : Have to disable my tv card to use my Quickcam
and vice versa .

Again - there is no such problem under Linux.

I wonder if Windows 98 (if it ever comes out) will work as well as other operating systems
that have been out for years.

I guess you Mac users must have a good laugh at all this .....

Fortunately I use Linux most of the time (it's free, it works and is 99.999% solid - i.e
needs re-booting as often as there are total eclipses of the sun ) .


End of rant against macro soft (promise) .
