i am new to the list and PD, very green, and in need of a little help,

i have been trying to get pd up and running on my system running xp and 98se
but without much success.

i do get audio signals through my RME HDSP out so far but this is only with
the testing audio patch,  any other patch or .pd file i tried to load
generates a lot of errors.

MMSYSTEM02, device out of range. this is under 98.

under XP: MidiInOpen: a device ID has been used that is out of range for
your system.

and i get just a lot of errors when i try to load just about any .pd.
Nothing will work, connection failed; all kinds of error's --> the program
can't seem to connect or comunicate with audiocard or pd, no commands can be

could this be a networking setup related thing? the pc has normal internet
setup for cable. this only just came to mind, actually.

do i need drivers or special tcp/ip networking setup config to get things
running smooth?

i have basically no idea now how to get the command promt actually executing
some flags, this is command line talk, i understand , but following the
manual doens't help much.

pd seems really quite powerful, however, also a little intimidating to me. i
would really like to have any hints or pointers that get me up and running.

sorry for the long newbie type of post, if you think i better keep my hands
of PD, just tell me.

but still, any help appreciated.
