Go up one level in this thread

Two copies of the hash table must get loaded. One temporarily because whenever
you exceed 50% of the RAM (fritz 5 is an exception because they create a
separate process for the engine and hash table) every chess program thrashes
with swapping. After the swapping stops then you can continue. As for WIN 98 the
problem is solved only if a new program is written  in inline blocks of code.
The problem will continue with all the old programs.
