progress report: so now that the ps2 mouse works, and sb pro 2 works at least under dos, but cant get it to work on win98... main reason for win98 was to get usb flash storage to work so I can easily copy files, but sb pro 2 not working was a major problem, so as a test I tried to install win95 osr 2.5, and found a custom usb driver XUSBSUPP with which I am now able to use my usb flash stick in win95 to copy files easily, and tried to do the same thing with the sb pro 2, add it from "add/remove hardware" in control panel, and unlike win98, it didnt bsod, it installed the driver fine, tested it with nfs se, the game works beatifully.
So, things worked out nicely, now I should be able to use the machine nicely with dos 6.22, win 3.11 and win95 osr2.5. Final thing left to figure out - how to best set up a dualboot of dos 6.22 and win95 on same hdd. I tried the usual install dos in c: first, then install win95 in d:, but that seems like it messed things up. Win95 seemed to work fine, but the only way to boot to dos 6.22 seemed to be to press F8 during win95 boot, and select "boot previous version of dos", which worked the first time I tried it, but after rebooting the machine again, it would no longer boot anything at all, looks like the boot loader crapped itself. So guess that's not the best way to do it... sigh... things with PCs this old sure are complicated
p.s. dualbooting 6.22 and win95 osr2.x sure is complicated
