Uploader Notes

This sound file was downloaded from www.avance.com but there seems to be a large outage most of the time. I finally got this one to download and had seen there was no posting of it. These files work for everything from Win98SE through WinXP. There are other files for WinNT, Win95, Linux, and OS/2 on their site as well. I have tested and confirmed with an ECS motherboard sound onboard that this file does work and is XP Logo'd.
