  1. I am trying to install windows 98, NT, 2000 and XP on the same computer. My problem is that I have a hard time finding a soundcard that supports older versions of windows. Almost all the soundcards that I have found on vendors sites support only 2000 and XP. Does anybody know of a soundcard that supports older versions and is of good quality? I shall be so grateful for your advice. Please post reply here or send to

    Hmm.. Have you actually managed to insall these operating systems? Getting NT and DOS (98) play together is tricky :)

    You probably have to go and buy an older used card. Something from the Creative SB Live! series or even the original Audigy should have NT4 support.

    Try C-Media, they're very cheap but offer some great 6.1 Chan Sound PCI cards that handle all versions of Windows. I have two cost me only $15 each.
