Uploader Notes

Hi - these files were found on 2 original disks along with an S3 PCI video card and small instruction sheet. It all looks like one package, sorry if it was not. Drivers are for Win95 & Win3.1. In addition NT, SCO Unix & OS/2 are also mentioned in the pamphlet but don't get their own directory names. Disk 1 has the drivers and disk 2 is "Xings MPEG Player Driver for Windows 95".

Pamphlet also notes that the card comes with 2MB DRAM on board. "You can upgrade your VGA card to 4MB by adding 4 pieces 256x16 DRAM."
