Yeah, I've still got it on hold, I'm playing Might & Magic instead and waiting for Knights of the Old Republic and Simpsons Hit 'n Run.
I remember that hall with the fire salamanders, it was very, very hard. I had my strongest fighter taking most of the heat (literally) and had the cleric nearby healing him. Elmo helped out by killing the lesser lizards that showed up behind the party. Long fight, plus the game slowed down significantly so it seemed to go on forever.
