A few days ago, I was trying to get a peecee emulator to work on my Mac so that I could play an RPG on it at the same time as my girlfriend. A friend of mine came over, saw my frustration, and came back with a gift for me ... his old peecee that he had sitting in storage for the past year. Well ... it "was" a K6II-350 with 64Mb SDRAM, 4Gb HDD. Ummm, but that didn't last long. Tuesday, I went up to the new puter repair shop in town, just to hang-out. The owner and I have become friends since the place opened about a month ago. I told him about the little peecee that my friend gave me, and he said he could help me out a little. He gave me a K6II-500 processor! He said he has a slew of them laying around which he uses for paperweights, lol. My girlfriend's old puter (long-since retired) was a K6-300. So I removed it's 7Gb HDD. I had a 128Mb stick of SDRAM laying around collecting dust. Welll ... the puter files were a total clusterfuck, so after installing the 500 CPU, the extra RAM, and the second HDD, I decided that it would be "wise" to partition and format the drives to start with a clean slate. I can be so damn stupid sometimes... DRIVERS!!! What a pain in the ass! Since when is it "wise" to wipe-out four to five year old drivers? Dohhh... Overall, I got pretty lucky finding the drivers. The mobo is an Epox EP-58MVP3C-M. The drivers for it were right there on their site. No prob. The graphics card is an ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP 2X. Again, the driver was easy to get, right on the manufacturers site. The sound card is a Soundblaster-16. Windows98SE recognized it right away and installed the drivers. The problem is the #%@$*&% modem. It's a ModemBlaster Flash 56, model DI5600. Windows 98SE recognized it right away and installed the drivers, but no workee. It worked fine before the drive format, so I know it works (actually, it connected better than any of the other modems in the house!). I tried calling Creative's tech support, but gave up after being on hold/wait for a half hour on my dime. I also tried my Diamond SupraExpress USB modem, but it didn't work either! I called their tech support, and they couldn't get it to work either! I'm stuck. Also, after I formatted, it doesn't recognize my second HDD. However, I haven't looked into that yet. The modem prob has had priority. If anyone has any ideas or would like to help in any way, please feel free. I don't want to bring it up to the puter shop cuz he probably wouldn't take my money ... know what I mean?
