I have a few questions to make sure everything is properly setup:
Did you fix resources (Does Windows recognize your cd/dvd drive?) if you didn't, make sure you boot to dos at least once and do everything in the directions before modifying any resources!
Yes. My windows recognises my CD DVD Drive without having to go through DOS installing drivers. I just made sure I installed the correct Chipset drivers and modified the resources.
I'll be giving that client a go asap.
The Synaptics driver that was provided within the thread causes VXD error on startup which has borked my installation. This is the third time it has happened so will probably not install it next time!
Do not download anything unless stated! I never tested those drivers DosFreak provided, so I have no idea what they can cause! The reason you must go into like stated in the instructions is so it still works after modifying resources, you do not need to install any Windows 9x drivers in DOS. The only thing we need to figure out (if you plan to use dos) is getting VDMSound 9x working! Because of the sound driver's lack of DOS support, we must figure out a way to make it emulate a sound blaster for DOS, if you plan on using DOS programs! Games appear to work fine in native dos, there's just no sound.
