"PCRUN utility improves compatibility" - seems to be a useful tip, thanks, Dave!
But what does "change the Console Mode" mean? How is this accomplished?

@Matthias: Yes, agreed, the 200 LX is a cute little machine. But I like the PP more, maybe due to its display, keyboard, IL-Interface, size, or just because of fond memories or the fact that it was more sensational back in 1985.
And, to be honest: Altough I was complaining about the poor RAM configuration of the PP - to overcome such difficulties and limitations, find solutions, work-arounds, is part of the fun, isn't it?
Otherwise I could easily use a more modern machine that is even much better ( read: quicker, more memory) than the 200 LX.
