goddamnit! i uninstalled the driver and reinstalled and it still reverted back to 120 when all was said and done.
it still requires the win xp pro disk. i think it over wrote some system file. i tried to locate it "dosapp.fon" and it wont write back to it...at least that was the file it wanted i found it in the sys32>dllchache and it didnt rewrite....but...
i dont know.
