Looks like it is working to me. Without the cable connected, you would need to use DDMA or DSMA.

is it addressed to me?
if so, did you solder the SB-Link connector to the ECS P6IPAT?
I am confused that the game Duke Nukem 3D in Windows 98 reboots the system.

I am now re-reading this YMF744, DOS, no DMA? (PC/PCI, SB-link tests) (edit YES DMA, read further down)
Tomorrow I plan to test the games that are mentioned there.

I also have an unopened Terratec 128I PCI for testing, but I'm not sure if the SB-Link connector is soldered on it.
