In case you don't find any manufacturer drivers for your machine then I would suggest trying out the universal driver developed by Bearwindows: http://bearwindows.b...d.net/vbe9x.htm

* The main IDEA of the project was taken from standard XP/2003 VGA.SYS display driver with generic VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE) 1.02/2.00/3.00+ support.
* VBEMP.DRV is a standard Windows 9x™ Video Display Driver.
* It supports ALL of MS Windows 9x™ Family (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows Me)
* It supports a wide range of videocards emulated via virtualization software: Bochs, QEMU, VMware, Innotek VirtualBox, Microsoft VirtualPC.
* For proper operation my driver expects that your video card's BIOS is 100%-compatible with VESA Video BIOS extensions specification. Nowadays there are many video cards that don't fully supports INT10 interface, which is provided by VESA/VBE standard (See VBE FAQ below for details).
* Supports VBE 2.00+ compliant PCI/AGP/PCI-E video cards with linear frame buffer.
* Partially supports VBE 1.x compliant ISA/EISA/MCA/VLB/PCI video cards with linear frame buffer (only Cirrus Logic chips).
* 256color(8bit), 16bit, 24bit, 32bit true color modes support.
* 320x200, 320x240, 320x400, 400x300, 512x384, 640x350, 640x400, 640x480, 720x400, 720x480, 720x576, 800x480, 800x600, 1024x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x800, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1400x1050, 1600x1200, 1792x1344, 1856x1392, 1920x1440, 2048x1536 if these resolutions are supported by your video card's BIOS. *
* Advanced Power Management (APM) and Monitor Detection support are provided by Windows itself.

He is also an active developer here at Boot Land, his forum section can be found here: http://www.boot-land...hp?showforum=60

Hope this helps.
