I developed and tested this on a Windows95 PC (Pentium II/64Mb/266MHz); your Virtual caving will be enhanced if you can use a similar or better machine with these plugins:Adobe SVG (W95/98/NT)andCosmoPlayer VRML (W95/98/NT/Mac); other hardware and software (especially Java-based) combinations should be possible, butI'ld like to know if you do have problems
