Re: The LlamaBlaster

If all you want to do is an early boot-stage initialisation of the CS4237, you might be better off implementing it as an option ROM. That would have it run on the host CPU during boot, eliminating unnecessary complexities like isolating the chip from the bus, and worrying about potential effects on …

Re: Tell about your country

in Milliways
Australia is much like anywhere really. You do a day's work. Spend the evening with your family. Check the bed for brown snakes. Then do it all again. Surely, you do not neglect the spider check on your shoes each morning?! (Lol!) My little parcel of dirt gets brown widows and brown recluse every …

Re: Tell about your country

Well.. I live in the smack dab, landlocked center of the USA. Not a whole lot to say about the region, other than that it tends to be an (increasingly) unstable mix of political persuasions, and frequently buys into the 'tech is a thing on the coasts' mindset. The US is not a culturally homogenous …

Re: Live-booting a HDD-less Pentium4 laptop to backup floppy disks.

I have booted win98se off a cd this way quite well. NT4 and pals need a special driver slipstreamed into the image, because they dont use int15 or int13 interfaces after ntldr. Syslinux's page lists several such drivers that identify, mount, and make use of memdisk provided ramdisks for such OSes, …

Re: Live-booting a HDD-less Pentium4 laptop to backup floppy disks.

Check out isolinux + memdisk. I have created fully bootable win9x 'installs' this way. For win98, you need at least 384 mb to allocate for the 'ramdisk', and you need to make aggressive use of drivespace3 compression with ultrapack. This means your P4 needs at least 1gb of RAM present. In a nutshell …

Re: Integrated Trident TVGA 9440AGi Memory expansion

I can't find any real information about this header, but are you sure it is not a VESA feature connector, with the extended header? the Advanced feature connector is 80 pin high density, and you can see the (unpopulated) header for it on the TGUI 9440AGI PCI cards. Most of the signals are redundant …
