Despite the fact that there possibly is/could be a problem with your
hardware config this effect may have another cause. While I evaluated
FW-1 for NT I had contact to three different resellers. All of them
warned me against using SP3 with FW-1. One of them even said that FW-1
is only running with SP1 without any problems. Seems to be that M$s
