"The damned Dell motherboard with "exclusive design" crapped all over the IRQ settings, and it took some wild guessing on the freaking proprietary BIOS to make it work. Installation was buggy, but it was not the driver's fault. The board ran fine with these drivers on other mobo. You won't run on such mobo, unless you got some Pentium 3 700MHz lying around."

"I can't believe that there has been so many downloads. I uploaded this file back in 2004 and thought noone would ever download it. I'm really glad this has helped so many people. I actually put together an old system for my sister the other day and used this same card and of course this driver. Kinda funny how things work. DrcJr77 @ everywhere"
