Try here: http://windows98.ic.cz in VGA section.
I'll probably buy 7600GS too because this 7300 have slightly less performance than my 6600GT.
I tried that version. The Installer worked basically, but told me it couldn't find any nvidia device and aborted.
Then I told windows to fetch the driver from that installers directory, which worked (copied some files etc).
But: as soon as I restart windows with the nvidia driver activated, it freezes after the first appearence of the mouse pointer.
I changed from LCD on DVI to a CRT on VGA with no effect.
I disabled the various nvidia programs from the autostart (via msconfig). Then booting worked. But the display settings are 800x600@16bit, and as soon as I start any nvidia tool (no matter which one, even display properties crash), the pc freezes and the display is shut off (to power save mode).
At the 800x600 mode there are display errors, too (some dotted stripes and distortions).
All driver versions I tried, showed the same picture, as soon as I got them installed, the PC froze (and switched the display off) after booting.
With a MX440 card, the driver works without problems.
There should be no hardware problem, because when using linux, the PC works fine. I think, if there were wrong settings in the BIOS, they would affect linux, too. (In my BIOS there is no option to disable BIOS cachings as described in the readme).
I'm using a fresh installed windows image with only the necessary motherboard drivers installed, so there should be no problem caused by other drivers.
Are there any updates, that I should install (on a raw WIN98SE) before the display drivers?
Are there any other drivers, that I can try? It would be a good start to use at least 2D functions with 1280x1024. I don't need 3D acceleration that badly on windows.
I'm at my wits' end now. Has anyone ever successfully installed a 7600GS on Win98SE?
PS: I'm using a K7VT2, Athlon XP 2100+, 512MB DDR RAM and a few HDs
