yes, you can TRY your NTFS USB HDD, but ONLY if you USE patched esdi_506.pdr from bighdd or RLoew, or USE ahci.pdr from RLoew.
ELSE you almost certainly will LOSE YOUR DATA !!!

i mean no networking.

the RJ45 cable is the ethernet cable(see the image)

i'm sorry, but can you share another audio driver:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_266D&SUBSYS_00661025&REV_04
Intel 82801FB(M) ICH6(-M) - AC'97 Modem Controller [B2]

 

and wireless driver:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4220&SUBSYS_27018086&REV_05
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG 3B Network Connection

 

- the audio works.. but sometimes it can fail.. i just lose audio, on game... and no message... only when i reboot\turn on, the windows tell me an error about the sound.dll... nothing more.

- the wireless is installed, but the OCM don't detect the wireless adapter, only the others :((Bluetooth,  PPP Adapter(the OCM tell 'Unknown", Microsoft TV/video Connection and the Broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet... but no wireless adapter :( even my hotspot isn't detected on OCM too. :(

maybe with new drivers, we can fix the problems.
thank you so much for all... thank you so much

:D :rolleyes: so OCM is Odyssey?
Odyssey is just 802.11x authentificator, it useless for solving real problems with wired network.
u have router? its that thing with 4-8 rj45 (multiplexor, one rj45 WAN <-> many rj45 LAN)?
if have - connect all ur machines to router, not directly.

now i see what you mean. hehehe sorry my confusion... the pci card is the modem and the other is the audio driver.
testing some games: Red Alert works excellent but, sometimes, i can lose the audio.. for get audio, i must re-execute the game...
the Serious Sam game don't give me audio :(
both games requisites are for win95 and above.
when i reboot the computer the sound.dll give me an error, that can't start... maybe was my mistake installing the Revolutions Pack for change the theme, like Win ME... but the WinSEME is better... i don't need change the system, just the theme be like ME.


the wireless, you know where i found it(searching from google)..
maybe i can find another working driver, but isn't easy.

maybe here i can find much more help ;)

note: after several years and playing DOOM2(and other 3D DOS games), i can ear the sounds effects and the background music... something that i think and change for test and works hehehehe

- the video was installed correctly(searching manually on a folder).. now works fine and tested on Directx 9.

- the audio driver detects the Conexant AC-Link Audio and try install... but, before finish, i get these error message: "Error installing device: Windows was unable to install the PCI Multimedia Audio Device device."

i don't know why the audio driver isn't installed :(

thanks for all
