If I could reach Day 5, maybe I'd give you a save game, but I'm stuck on day 2 =(

You may want to try going to the Sierra web page and looking around to see if they have a patch there

I've found a savegame for you at http://www.spieleforum.de/

click on "Savegames" then on "Sierra". I don't know if this is
of any help, as I can't try it myself, but I think it's worth a
try

According to the README file, some customers have problems
with lockups at the beginning of Day 5. This is taken straight
from the readme:

Problem:  Some customers have reported lockups at the beginning of Day 5.  There is a wait cursor, and the control panel is available, but nothing else responds and the game does not progress.  The lockup can occur at several different points within the opening sequence of Day 5.  Some report a lockup after the phone rings and Gabriel says "I got it".  Other customers lock when Grace hands Gabriel a package.  
Solution:  Turn the Speed slider control (located in the control panel) all the way up prior to the end of Day 4.  The Speed control is unavailable during the ending sequence of Day 4 and the beginning of Day 5, so it may be necessary to restore to a previous save game to do this.  
Note: Move the control towards the right to turn it up and to the left to turn it down.

Well, if you still want a savegame, contact me. The only problem may be that they'll work only with the same soundcard configuration. I used Soundblaster Pro for music and Soundblaster for speech.
