I have a Thinkpad 760el that I recently acquired. Will Seal System work with it? It has a faulty memory module and I plan to fix or replace it (currently it does not boot to the hard drive).

I have found, bought and installed a memory module for the 760EL. I will give Seal Ssytem a try on it as soon as I find a hard drive that I can format with FreeDOS (the hard drive that I had FreeDOS and Seal System on it does not fit the 760EL but it did the 755CD).

I installed the new memory module and now have 73 megs of ram in my 760EL Thinkpad. I took the hard drive with the FreeDOS and Seal Ssytem out of the caddy that it was in since it would not fit the 760EL. I tried the Seal System. It works great. I tried the fire screensaver (ti is really awesome). It eventually crashed on a program but I was able to get farther with it than I ever did before).

The screen saver used the entire screen but Seal system only used about 75/80 percent of the screen. Is this normal or is there a way around it? There is a 'black space' around the Seal System GUI window.

The black space is probably your laptops way to cope with the resolution, that is because a laptops screen is optimized for a certain res, and since you're obviously not running in that res, it does that to give you something nice to watch... So try find a resolution that works...

Maybe I'm wrong but that's my experience w/ my own laptop...

you'll tend to find that some screen modes stretch to fill the screen(which is horrible), while other might only ocupy the actual number of pixels required, so yes, up the resolution a little.
