You mention installing the Live! Drivers withe the Liveware 3.0 CD. Did you update the drive verscafter that? Creative still has them available. Pretty sure there were updates after the 3.0 CD.
I am going to download the update. I will reinstall windows 98, now that my Voodoo1 which arrived a few days ago has been tested to work. I will run the W98 updates, tweak the system, install the Live!Ware CD and run the update, and then I will install the V1 drivers, then the V2 drivers, and finally the V5 drivers - and leave them at the default settings. I will probably backup my W98 install prior to the V5 driver installation, so that I can test the different available drivers (reference, Amigamerlin, etc.) In the meantime, I will look for more RAM (512 GB) and keep looking for a compatible slocket and P3 Tualatin.
I am trying to remain period correct, though I may grab a P4 if I find a mobo with enough PCI and ISA slots (maybe with integrated LAN,) and a compatible AGP slot - for convenience. I have a Roland SCC-1, but if I get the AWE64 Legacy, I can buy an external SC-55 and free up a slot (and sell the SCC-1.)
