Has anybody been able to successfully load FastBinaryFiles on
an NT 4.0 system? I've tried using Bruce Miller's recommended
file re-names and snagging the mlink32.dll from 2.2, but I get
an Error Message from WinNT stating that mlink32.dll is a 
"Bad Image", then the message suggests I check the distribution
disk. (Was mlink32.dll compiled for Win32s ?)

I've also been un-successful in any attempt to run a re-compiled 
version of FastBinaryFiles.

I get the following messages when I try my Install[""]

MessageName::messg : OpenReadBinary::usage cannot be set to 
OpenReadBinary[] opens the named file for reading. I ... 
enameConverion for more information. filename, it must be set
to a string.

(I get the same message with the interupting ... in different
places for OpenAppendBinary and OpenWriteBinary then I get a
General::stop followed by the following message)

ToExpression::sntx : Syntax error in or before "           
...           ^".

Unfortuneately, Bruce is on vacation so I haven't heard back
from Wolfram yet.. Has anybody else been able to get 
FastBinaryFiles to work????

Any help would be much appreciated.
