I don't have that particular card, but I do have PNP cards. Have you tried the
PNP utilities,"pnpdump & isapnp" ? The first one probes all PNP cards on your
system and produces a configuration file. You edit the file and select the
options for your machine. Then you use isapnp to configure those cards. They
work like a champ. As far as options go, if you don't know what to select, use
the same parameters that Win-NT uses for the card.
