dos driver for SB PCI512

    Hi !
    I can't get that sound card to work under DOS. I have a Pentium with
    Win2K installed. I downloaded a dos driver from drivernet.com. But
    when I try to set up the driver via "sbeset" I get error msg like :
    "Cannot support BIOS extended features.". Some of the exes complaint
    about a missing env variable ?

    Any clue what I am doing wrong ?

    Thanx,
    Matthias

    I don't think 'true DOS' drivers even exist (nor do you have 'true DOS' even
    installed, since you have W2K)

    Why don't you try a program called VDMSound, it provides full sound support
    for DOS-box games despite what soundcard you have. Get it here:
    http://ntvdm.cjb.net/

    VDMSound works on Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. And is free
    to use.
