Re: Mobility radeon x700 and win9x.

I added my ID's to [mfg] section in C8.INF file in the Catalyst 6.2 drivers : "ATI RADEON XPRESS 200" = RS480_ENU, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5955&SUBSYS_308B103C "ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 " = RS400_ENU, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5A41 "ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series" = RS482_ENU, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_5974 You'll probably have …

Re: Mobility radeon x700 and win9x.

It probably isn't supported by the existing drivers as is, but after adding the device IDs to the driver INF files it will probably work as it did with Xpress200 chipset's integrated video that I was using on my HP NX6125 laptop.

Re: PCI Bus Mastering in DOS

Card can most probably move data faster than CPU can in its tightest loop when doing GUI acceleration operation such as scrolling which is where bus mastering probably comes in on those video cards. In DOS there's gonna be no interface for such a thing to be used and nothing will even know such a …

Re: Help with fixing Creative TNT2 Ultra

Yes, remove inductor and connect the two pads together (or put a wire across the inductor, but that won't look as neat usually). Those inductors and capacitors form a peaking network that relies on resonances to boost transitions of signals that makes some resolution (say 1024x768) look little …

Re: PCie-to PCI, PCI to ISA, # of slots multipliers - bridges, risers, backplanes, research, especially for DOS, WIP.

Lack of LDRQ means that DMA controller should be finally deleted from the chipset, which means it should be possible to create your own over PCI or PCI-E and no longer need LPC for anything except for SERIRQ signal. FPGA will be necessary though, CPLD will be too small for such a stunt. PCI-E puts …

Re: PCie-to PCI, PCI to ISA, # of slots multipliers - bridges, risers, backplanes, research, especially for DOS, WIP.

LPC bus has everything necessary, what does matter is IO ports configuration and a custom utility will be needed for that. DMAs aren't used by anything on the board though IRQ assignments may be on the arbitrary side by the BIOS but that can still be fixed by reprogramming the chipset. EDIT: …

Re: MS-98L9 V2.0 , a new 1151MB with an ISA slot

in Milliways
Turns out this board has LPC to ISA bridge, same chip as one on my C2D board so it will be able to support at least some ISA sound cards ~ Southbirdge chip has no LDRQ signal on the LPC bus, so DMA is not possible even though the bridge chip can support DMA... bummer.

Re: MS-98L9 V2.0 , a new 1151MB with an ISA slot

in Milliways
A friend showed it a moment ago and I tried to find more info but I was unable to. There's no good photos around so I could see what the ISA bridge chip is. There's a good chance it lacks working DMA and IRQs which makes the slot useless... but I am certainly excited to some level.

Re: Fujitsu ICL Indiana

I have one also, but insides have changed over the years. http://www.tmeeco.eu/ABOUT/ServFrnt.jpg http://www.tmeeco.eu/ABOUT/ServBack.jpg http://www.tmeeco.eu/ABOUT/SideShot2.jpg (not the original board or hardware) Originally it had 32MB RAM, Pentium 166 (without MMX), Mach64CT with 1MB RAM, Labway …
