  1. I agree with you mkjp on some things (foobar2000 for instance). I usually do only clean installs of Win98SE. Here's my install: 1. format c: /q (my C drive has only 1-2 Gb, and the information kept there is expendable) 2. Install 98lite (+ Win98SE) -> NO IE!!! 3. Install latest drivers 4. Install directx 8.1 5. Install Sesp2.0 6. Install programs (only few: Total Commander, Irfanview, Firefox, foobar2000 or winamp 2.91, a colection of video/audio codecs made by a friend and other programs). My system is a rocket.. Thanks, Gape!
  2. Kinda Well the only objection is that it not JUST for me... I'm sure many users would be happy to have such a support.. This service pack's purpose it's (if I understood correctly) to provide support and fetaures there where they don't exist or to correct some major issues, etc... So I think USB2.0 support would be a great achievement (if not maybe the best one). Thanks for your help horsecharles!
  3. No need to prove U know what U're saying. I found myself those drivers (before U recommended them).. Unfortunately they're not working.. so... I would like USB2.0 support from Service Pack 2.0.. that has nothing to do with Sis. It has to do with Win98se
  4. Sorry.. I'm sorry for your badluck... If you look at some reviews U'll see that the Amd Sis-based motherboards are actually the fastest in hdd performance (of course RAID systems are not compared). If U don't believe me I'll provide U some links to those tests. I haven't use P4 systems to be able to comment there, but on the AMD front SIS is pretty good. When I say that, I don't mean they are the best.. no way.. but at the price U pay for them SIS chipset offer more performance/buck compare to ANY other chipsets. They have their shortcomings (mainly their AGP performance) and now their lack of some support (USB2.0 in this case). I agree with U that SIS used to be really bad before (like 5 years ago or so.. yes, they were). Their video chips were awfull... but starting with their SiS735 chipset they started to compete for the first place in performance. As hard is to believe that, the SIS735 was the FASTEST chipset at the time of its introduction (see http://www.tomshardware.com/motherboard/20010611/index.html for instance). I'm sorry the discussion took another direction that it should. My opinion (based on my own experience, of many hardware-related articles read) is that SIS are pretty good. I need a USB2.0 support for my future laptops (used ones). I own a combo drive that is USB2.0 compliant and also I'd like to purchase a good-quality USB soundcard (Audigy 2NX for instance). In USB1.1 its performance sucks... I think I foun a USB2.0 driver for Sis.. it remains to see if it really works

  6. Soldier1st, I'm using computers (PC) for almost 13 years now.. and I've started (seriously) with Dos 5.0 and passed through different versions of Dos/Win. I had about 10 different computers (not to mention hundreds of components) and 5 laptops... so I bet I'm not stupid And I'd say Sis are pretty cool actually.. I've benn sticking with them since the great days of Sis735. Now I'm using a Sis746Fx based mobo.
  7. Did I sounded that stupid? Of course I know what U are saying... Unfortunately the f***s in charge with driver writing from SiS did not considered that they should bother creating a WIN98SE driver for their southbridges and I don't think they will ever write such drivers... so I cannot use USB2.0 under WIN98SE. Gape wanted to create a USB Mass Storage (generic) driver.. why not include also a USB2.0 support (generic driver)? I've heard WinMe supports USB2.0 so it wouldn't be impossible...
  8. Hello... Gape do U think there is a way to add USB 2.0 support for WIN98SE?.. I know it's very hard but it would be supercool.. and there would be a nice relation: sesp2.0 - USB2.0.. I've "heard" support form Win Me it's under developement (?!).. Thank U for your work...
