Anyone has the CD included with Sound Blaster 16 Pro CT2950 (ISA)?

The files in the CD should have dates around late 1995 or begging of 1996.

I've been playing around with a Gateway Essentials 500 desktop PC for a little while now, turning it into a retro gaming PC for some light nostalgia trips. It has an Intel Warm Springs WS440BX motherboard in it and when I received it I noticed that it didn't have the most recent BIOS installed. After checking vogonsdrivers, Gateway support, and Intel support, I couldn't find exactly what I needed. Further digging through Google DID reward me with what I think is the final BIOS version for the WS440BX, being 4W4SB0X0.15A.0019.P14.0005091032.

I flashed it to the board without problems and everything is working great.

I'd like to offer this BIOS update for posting on vogonsdrivers in case anyone needs them in the future. The files included needed to be put on a floppy disk and loaded from DOS, as the disk wasn't bootable and it wouldn't open from Windows. Link below:

I don't see 7-zip 9.20 (last Win9x compatible version) listed in the Utilities section. Should it be there? I notice WinRAR is there. Perhaps there are copyright issues? I always install it on my 9x computers, and it seems to work with everything; even the context menu works and is immeasurably useful in my daily 9x usage.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

9.20 was the last stable version of 7zip with support for Win9x. Last supported beta was 9.22.
I prefer the 9.20 version because the options window fits in 640x480 resolution.

Don't you experience the drag and drop problem discussed here?: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=64952

Yes, I do. I hadn't noticed that before! I don't really use the file manager much; I tend to work in Explorer then just use the context menu to perform zip and unzip operations.
