I'm in a slightly different boat from Matt (diablo).  I understood about
90% of those questions, but I have only a vauge idea of how to go about
finding out the answers.  You listed a few utils in the last section, JC,
but for the most part I'd be stumped on how to go about checking these
potential problems.  Would it be possible to generate a list of
utils/methods for checking these things?  It seems like adding this list to
the FAQ / web page would be most usefull.

On a side note, does anyone know of any good, free profilers, for linux or
Win9x?
