This makes it sound easy but it wasn't at all.

The program failing to start has noting to do with the cable or the radio.

It has to do with the fact that Chirp requires SP3 and Windows XP is not something
that upgrades easily to SP3 from SP1 or SP2. If you don't believe me, read the hundreds of 
horror stories all over the web. If it was just me that would be one thing. In the case of my 
laptop, Chirp would not start at all, so I know it hasn't checked what radio, drivers or cable is
