Believe it or not, 'wordpad' will honor Unix line endings; I've used
to view Unix-formatted files.  However, I believe it will put in
CR/LFs if any new lines are added to the file.

I would recommend you run drwatson.exe; it's a standard Windows
program that will create a dump of sorts whenever a Windows program
crashes.  It must be run before the program being checked is run.
After drwatson.exe is run, run SETUP.EXE.  You should see a dialog box
come up either before or after you dismiss the GPF dialog.  Dr. Watson
then will create a text file with information regarding the GPF.  In
theory, the bug can then be isolated to source file line, assuming
that a linker map file for SETUP.EXE is available.
