Boot into MS-DOS mode and then run the DOS/Win 3.11 setup but, just skip the Windows 3.11 setup part.
It also depends what model number you have as later models were Plug 'n Play.
It's pnp, no jumpers.
when you say "run the DOS/Win 3.11 setup", you mean the setup for installing win 3,1 or the drivers for win 3.1/dos?
Because I installed win 98 straight from cd-rom, so it never installed DOS or win 3.1 beforehand
Correct. However, be sure to first boot into MS-DOS mode. You can also setup a boot menu to either boot directly into DOS 7.1 or Windows 98.
Since your card is PnP, you normally also require a PnP configuration manager but, under Windows 9x, that part should be taken care of via Windows 98 - it normally reads the configuration of the card from a config file in the Windows folder (ctpnp.cfg) that is configured via Windows.
You still need to install CTCM (the Creative PnP configuration manager) to initialise the card under DOS. This is normally installed when you install the Windows drivers - as I recall, there is an option to install DOS drivers as well but, it's been a while since I played around with my Sound Blaster hardware.
