I'm trying to help a freind over the phone with this problem.He upgraded from WIN95 to 98,and there seems to be a bit of a problem.
In systems manager,there's a "!" at the "Secondary IDE (FIFO)".In the properties,it says "No drivers,No program".
Where would I find these?WIN98 disk?If so,then what file?Thanks!

You need to find out what hard ware he / she has.
Could be a second HDD or a CD Rom.

Is something not working? Is the secondary IDE controller enabled in the bios setup?

If bios is ok....then more than likely you'll need to reinstall the motherboard drivers.......

Look in the device manager, for something like VIA, SiS, Intel......

Is it a name brand computer?
