  1. Dear all,

    I recently installed intel 915GAV motherboard. I want to keep dual booting options for win 98 and win xp. however i observed that even on microsoft site the drivers for this motherboard (having onboard modem,lan,sound, graphics) are for win 2000 and win xp only.

    From where i can get the drivers for win 98 for this motherboard ?

    Any suggestions ?

    Windows 98 is not a supported operating system for this motherboard and Intel will not supply Windows 98 drivers for it.
