Amiga 1200 OS 3.9 Etherlink 3 (3c589.device) and whdload

Hi, I have a 1200 with a blizzard 1230 32MB, os 3.9 bb4 and a pcmcia etherlink 3 network card. All is working stable and flawlessly except for a problem with many whdloads but also with some demos that run directly from the workbench. The problem is that when the network is up and online, using genesis tcp/ip stack, a lot of whdloads but also some non-whdload demos simply stuck with a black screen. The strange thing is that the whd quitkey still works and returns to workbench fine. For some games is enough to just disable the net for others I need to reboot and load the game without starting the net first. I also tried the NoNetwork flag for whdload just to be sure. This problem is definitely minor but it would be just great to auto start the network on bootup and don't worry about it. As a next step I would like to try roadshow demo and maybe os 3.2 when I can get it. What do you think? Thanks

Look in S: at WHDLoad-Startup, WHDLoad-Cleanup, and WHDLoad.prefs

It's all worked out for you already
