Run Skymap 510 w/Win 95

I'm having problems getting SKYMAP 510's  ANSI (Blue) Screen  to work on
Windows 95.  It seems that DOS is not DOS in Win95, rather W950U
Bla-Bla-Bla, or something.

I understand the idea of writing DEVICE=C:\DOS\ANSI.SYS to the CONFIG.SYS
but DOS is NOT in a C:\DOS directory.  Also, the Blue ANSI Screen will
not show up in any configurations I try to run from a DOS Window.  "I'm
Shattered!"  I love this program.

I can run STSPLUS, TRAK310, SATSPY, LOGSAT, WINORB27, HOME PLANET and QUICKSAT w/o problems.  SKYMAP DOES WORK in this bast*rd DOS Mode but I'm
really getting fed-up with viewing the ANSI Code on all the menu pages.

Does anyone have a "fix" for this problem?  I would have preferred to
stay with my DOS 6.2/Windows 3.11 but the damage is done. . . . . . . .

Regarding satellite viewing:

Are there any elements for Delta Star #19911 or RME #20497 (Star
wars-type satellites from what I read)?

Are both Lacrosse 1 & 2 supposed to be a reddish color, if so, are they
"ruby red" or just a reddish hue?  They go over Orlando, FL now and then
but I can't see them.  I've been using "Ted's elements" and allowing
several minutes of error before & after the viewing time.  Any tips?
