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

Error setting 24 bit graphics mode
VESA not available


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