Driverpacks for Windows 98

What's this project?
This project was inspired by Bâshrat the Sneaky who started the Driverpacks project which, if you didn't already know, is absolutely fantastic. When you include them in your unattended Boot & OS re-installation DVD they will install the drivers for your standard hardware components that you normally have to do yourself after the OS has installed. This means a computer is completely ready to go after using a DVD with these driverpacks on them to install your OS. Well, since i'm about to release probably the last version of the Unattended Boot CD (UBCD) for Windows 98/98se i thought i'd make it extra special and in order for it to all work (especially for newer computers) the new UBCD needs to be able to function properly after the OS has finished installing, ie chipset drivers that tell the OS what all the new fangled hardware does is essential to be able to continue installing all of the other goodies contained in the new UBCD. Without a comparable project to Bâshrat's driverpacks, the UBCD won't work for everyone and the majority of these people will be the ones with better hardware (which they could still be using in 5 years). So, this only became obvious a few days ago when i was testing out on a K7 AMD AthlonXP 2600+ and it turned out i needed to install the chipset drivers for everything to work.

So, if you intend on making your own UBCD, then you'll want to send me your chipset drivers, especially if they aren't natively supported in Windows 98.

Windows 98 only: I was originally going to make this for Win95 and WinME as well but then i looked at the amount of extra work it would involve and decided it was impossible. Sorry to get your hopes up. I will, however, include drivers on an individual basis, ie, you send me the drivers (or provide a link) and i'll add them to a special pack you'll be able to use.

I'm releasing a new version of the UBCD and i want to include updated driver packs. Please post your suggestions for inclusion.

Sept 28, 2007: The video driverpacks have been tested with 3 cards (see below) so far and all work fine with an unattended installation of all drivers. Yippee.

cards tested:
Radeon 9800 series
GeForce3 Ti 200

Sept 26:
After some help from fellow MSFN members (especially SubMix8c) i have cracked the driver packs for Win98/ME method! It wasn't hard in the end, just a matter of adding a line to msbatch.inf and writing some code to extract the packs, and then delete them after.

The main goal is to have the USERs video card properly installed before desktop loads. No other driver (IMHO) is as important due to the fact these can always be installed after setup finishes, whereas the some post-installation tasks like the post-installation wizard (WPI) needs more than 16 colors at 800 x 600 resolution.

Please post the details of the cards you'd like supported in the driver packs, and provide links where you can.

To my knowledge soporific hasn't made any changes to this project for almost 3 years [since February 2008].
I'm not sure he still updates the Driverpacks anymore. ;-(

When you quote something, please limit quote length to a minimum relevant to your question/request/comment.
Thanks for listening. ;-)
