    Thought for sure I'd have one of those VLB's out in the garage...nope. Went out there specifically to take a look. Just a bunch of smaller cards that say 'Trident' on them.

    I swear my mind is slipping...I looked at the 486 DX2's out there and thought to myself...there's no way in hades I can remember how to set one of these old rigs up.

    Did find a complete rig that I set up back in 1991 or 1992 and hadn't touched since.

    Best,

    i built one as recent as 2006. I might be able to help a little. the one i had had some odd combo cards, one had vga and the ide/floppy while another had sound, mouse, and printer ports. I remember overclocking the AMD 133 486 of mine to 150mhz. I installed 98SE on it and was able to play MPEG2 videos and run Starcraft decently. It also had a total of 48mb 72pin (i think) memory. 2x8mb and 2x16mb

    Bruce...

    You shouldn't volunteer for such things...:). I might take you up on it. I did notice the build had what looked like a raid controller card for the hard drive and thought to myself...hmm don't remember these at all. :shadedshu Other than this...nothing special, 486 DX2 66, the CPU had a 40mm cooling fan on it. I might have to fire it up and check it out. Also saw a Slot II complete system that was brand new(and completely fanless).

    Best,

    LC

    P.S. I'll get a pic as soon as my camera gets back from being on loan. Mid week.

    I never owned one of these, but this is the first card I remember finding very attractive, back in my BF Vietnam days.

    wow i got lucky with my setup then... seems the 40mhz bus i had it set to was the limit for VLB VESA cards.

    Heh I still have a Win98 floppy boot disk for loading the CD-Rom driver

    man i remember using those for AT machines, after that and i figured out most machines can boot from CD i would use just the CD itself for 98SE install
