It shouldn't matter whether you are running XCD or not, just that
the system has access to the MD files for surface data. It sounds like
the ADDE datasets were not defined during the installation process
for 7.40.  Were the DSSERVE.BAT and MYDATA.BAT  and LOCDATA scripts 
run per the instructions at:


These set up the appropriate dataset names and locations for use by 
the ADDE commands - in this case SFCLIST.  You can check by running


to list out which datasets are defined and then:


to list out where the datasets are supposed to be residing. 

In the first case, make sure that RTPTSRC/SFCHOURLY is defined.  In the
second case, make sure that RTPTSRC is listed as LOCAL-DATA.  Lastly,
make sure you have the REDIRECTions set up correctly for MD files 1-10.

Yes, we are still trying to figure out if you can use the rest of the
disk.  The problem is drives > 8 GB are not supported right out of the
box.  Mike is looking into what can be done.  If we can't get to the
rest of the disk, we could probably move /usr/local to a larger partition.

I'll get back to you when I find out more from Mike.
