Here's the story.

As far as I can tell F77 1.8 is not available.  I've Googled quite a bit 
for it.  My source for 1.9 is 
<http://www.openwatcom.org/index.php/Download>. It gives me: 

When I install, there are only choices: Custom, which presumably will 
ask a lot of questions, and some one shot do-it without any 
intervention.  I took the latter.

..., XP, and no Win7? I use Win7. Trouble??

Something is amiss with my install. I downloaded 1.9. I did not use any 

  I can bring up the IDE easily. Using it is a different matter. The 
only Getting Started in F77 manual I can find is shown as v1.8.  If 1.9 
is needed, I can't find it. If I use the 1.8 manual, then the contents 
don't match up with what I find in the F77 IDE.  For example, the manual 
talks about a Kitchen project on page 15.  Not found anywhere in the 
install folder.
