i've done something wrong or overlooked something i guess.everything was workin ok on my wifes pc she had a 4gig master hd and a 10gig slave. i wanted the 10gig as the master so i reformatted both drives ,changed the jumpers,and loaded win 98full version ,then loaded 98se upgrade .everything seemed ok until i started to load the drivers for the modom,sound card,and cdrw. i insalled the cards let windows detect them then load the drivers.they install as normal thenthey say they are loaded but they ALL have a problem.
they all sudgest reinstalling the drivers . when i try to do so it keeps the same driver as the best ones . is there some kinda pci conflict or exception i have over looked ? or somthing i should change in the bios?

You need to load the chipset drivers first, before any other drivers.

The chipset drivers should've come with the PC (or motherboard) on CD or diskette.
The drivers are usually installed by just running the setup program.

Or, if you know the exact make and model of the PC, you could always download the drivers off of the internet from the manufacturer's website.
