Hello. This is my first time to ask help on vogons.

Recently, I got HP Thin Client T5740 for build retro gaming (DOS, Win9x). It seems there is AMD FirePro 2270 or 2460 on the board.

My goal is installing win98/winxp for retro gaming. However I could not find any driver for win9x and xp.
It seems that another seller got a driver for winXP and 9x. Is there any method to get driver?

All Win98 drivers are only available for up to T5720. T5730 and T5740 have only WinXP drivers available. This also applies to that GPU, there are no Win98 drivers for those FirePro GPUs.

Socket 775 - ASRock 4CoreDual-VSTA, Pentium E6500K, 4GB RAM, Radeon 9500@9700, ESS Solo-1, Win 98/XP
Socket A - ASRock K7S41GX, AMD Athlon XP 3000+, 512MB RAM, GeForce4 Ti4200, SB Live, Win 98

Is this T5740 powerful for early winxp or even late win98 games?
Also the on board AMD GPU shouyld be gimped.
