    I think in the BIOS that DOS supports USB if you enable the thing in BIOS. Not sure.

    Enable DOS USB Mouse support in the BIOS.

    Then install a DOS PS/2 Mouse Driver.

    SMC 8000

    Just tried your boot disk with my SMC EtherEz 8416 card

    it seems to detect the card correctly - gives the right io and IRQ

    but it gives an "internal error has occurred"

    any ideas ?

    Sounds like the SMC8000 driver won't work with that card.

    If you send me the SMC EtherEz 8416 card NDIS2 .DOS driver I'll add it to the disk too.

    ndis2 driver

    I looked through the drivers i found for this card on the SMC site - there doesnt appear to be a "8416.dos" file just the 8000.dos

    thats why i assumed it would work with that driver

    weird

    Last week ;)

    Sorry but I've been playing RTCW too much :D

    But I have made progress on it. Was testing it this week at work and I've found a few things that need attending too. Hopefully I'll fix it up tomorrow, so if you keep on my back, I should have it ready in the next few days :)

    EDIT: Yes I will do it tomorrow, I need it working fully for work next week!

    I think adding a few realtek driver's wouldn't be a bad idea (sorry If you have them already, haven't had a look at your site yet)

    cos heaps of cards made made by acer etc are based on realtek chips.


    EDIT: duh you already have about 5 :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
