    Currently I have only 16 colors and 800x600 desktop area. NT is using the "Default Monitor" and I did not boot in VGA mode. My video card is AccelGraphics Venus DGX4 Rev 2.1A . I tried to find a driver and what I did find was for Win98. I tried that and it started asking for files - vbrun300.dll and I could find that, then it asked for threed.vbx - is this going to work even if I get all the required files? Is there a NT driver for this video card?

    Might not be one. Did you ever have a NT driver for that card?

    No.

    Trying to load an old operating system on an old PC. Forehead bloody from the effort, and I am not finished yet.

    Second driver need. I have a 3COM Etherlink XL 10/100 PC 1 TX NIC (3C905B-TX) network card. NT does not recognize it. I have run windiags.exe, 3c90x1.exe, and venus.exe. Either I don't know how to use them properly or NT will never recognize the card or I need another driver. Suggestions?

    The 3c90x1.exe file should be an exectuable file that makes a floppy disk with the drivers on it.
