Win98SE, cant get sound card to install

  dmm27 18:15 30 Dec 2006

I have done a clean install on the kids PC, putting back win98SE. It has an old creative ct4810 soundcard on it that was working fine before.

I cant get it to install now. It keeps coming up in device manager as a yellow question mark. I have realised that I dont have the sound card cd with the drivers, so have downloaded what I presume are the correct ones from Creatives website, but running their .exe file doesnt install the drivers. I cant find any drivers on the win98 cd either.

Anyone got any odeas of how to install it?

have you disabled onboard sound in the bios before installing the card.

Thank you brundle

I found these very drivers after posting my question. Creative very helpfully dont tell you these are needed as well.
