When trying to run some of the examples which came with Allegro( the
exe's in c:\djgpp\allegro\examples), I get the error seen below, or I
get an idle blank black background (not a bluescreen). My system is PPro
200, NT 4, 64M. Most of the examples (up to and including ex21) work
fine.

C:\djgpp\ALLEGRO\EXAMPLES>ex31
Error setting 24 bit graphics mode
VESA not available

C:\djgpp\ALLEGRO\EXAMPLES>

Is this due to NT? Is there an easy fix for this? Thanks
