Allegro programs are never going to work properly under NT. As for
the other platforms, either there is a bug in your code that just
doesn't show up on your machine for some reason, or perhaps Allegro
is having problems with the hardware on these other platforms. Try
running some of the Allegro test programs, eg. test.exe, play.exe,
and setup.exe. Do these work when using the same modes and drivers
as your program?
