MSI K7N2-D and Windows 98?

    This board does not support Windows 98, just 98SE or better. But I
    installed anyway to see what happens. No on board sound. I found an
    ac-97 codec driver for Win98 that I thought might work, but nope. My
    question is what is the difference with Win98 and Win98SE and can I
    "patch" my Win98 to make it work properly with this board?
    BTW if anybody is having trouble finding RAM for the K7N2-D, Crucial
    didn't work, Kingston didn't work,
    finally a stick of Corsair 256mb ddr dimm worked. GA

    My guess would be the driver only works with Win98SE / ME. It should be
    possible to use your AC97 audio with Win98 if you can find a driver for
    Win95/98. You may have to do some real searching though. My AC97 onboard
    worked fine with Win95.

    I'd suggest just buying cheap used sound card (something like Live! value).

    Regarding RAM, I have K7N2-L and Infineon (Crucial) does not work properly.
    I downclocked CPU FSB (not RAM FSB though) to 120(240)MHz from 133(266)MHz
    and everything is nice (RAM is running at 400MHz). I just ordered
    dual-channel PC3200 2x256 Geil. Will see if it will work.
    On the other side, my friend's K7N2-DeltaL works fine with Kingston
