Well, I did some poking around and found that someone with a similar situation had success by yanking out the joystick.  Voila!  It works!

Looks like a regular old window to me.  It's totally black except for the header bar and a thin gray border.  No blinking cursor or anything.  My mouse pointer turns to a white outline.

Here's the logfile:

Hello, all!
I'm new to this game, but been messing with computers since the days of DOS.  I've installed v.0.6.2 and when I run it, it opens a window, but goes no further.  Just a black box.  What am I doing wrong?

System is a 1.2GHz Athlon, with  ATI Radeon 9200, running W98.
