WOW! Karl, U have a complete museum, amazing!

I might embarrass myself if I told of all the old computer gear I have in "that closet" and elsewhere! :oops:
Lost count and track of most of what I have accumulated. Anyone remember 8-bit video cards with 128 k memory?
Or 1 meg SIPP modules? L2 cache modules for older Socket 5 boards? CGA monitor? Amsrrad? Kaypro? Wang? Magitronic? 14.4 modems? Token Ring? Amiga? Commodore? MFM hard drives? Quantum "hard cards"?
Yes, maybe a museum might be interested in my antiquities.

BTW I have a 9.6 serial modem that is still working

Some "old" computer history.. http://oldcomputers.net/ti994a.html
My first 'computer' was similar to the TI 99/4A. Then a Commodore 64. Still have the receipt for that Commodore.
With the disk drive, tape drive and printer, was more than $800.00 USD!! Later got a "hard card" 10 meg (yes, MEGS) storage drive for near $200.00 USD. Then moved on to a more "modern" Victor Champion XT at 8 MHz. Makes me feel old.

Err.. back on topic.. did zebdooley ever get the manual and is the system good?

Thanks for the coarse redirection Karl, I was about to intervene.. :P

Well it was the device drivers that was the stumbling block.. Manual and BIOS'es are available on Mobokive.

Some googling based on the manual gives me this:

All-in-one driver set for the VIA Apollo Pro Plus chipset:
http://download.viatech.com/DownloadDri ... ver_id=144

ESS Solo-1 soundcard driver:
http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... 69%29.html

Highpoint Xstore controller drivers:
ftp://ftp.tcrc.edu.tw/Hardware/TekrAm/M ... ORE120.EXE

That basically should be enough to get you going except for any networking stuff, you need to check the network card itself.
