So I write :

Okay, I can agree with what you're both saying, but that doesn't fix the 
customer, and that's a problem - the customer now says that we've put a 
non-supported OS on and he is in hot water if he has to contact Sage, which 
he does fairly regularly, as they are a big customer.  This is why I'm 
trying to gauge numbers of users, so we can put pressure on them to support 
it.  On the current scenario, it seems one of the machines was causing 
corruption in the tables, and we have eradicated it by loaning them a 
machine, only time will tell if it works.  Also - VMWare? - on a server? - 
all my servers don't have X on them. :)
