os drivers

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.device_driver.dev (More info?)

I have been having problems installing older hardware and
software that were made for os like windows 95 and 98. I
suspect that the problem is that I need drivers from
those operating systems that my os, windows xp, does not
have.

Is there a way I can download windows 95/98 drivers that
does not require that I buy those operating systems??

    For hardware, the correct place to look for drivers is the manufacturer's
    website.

    For software, you may be able to use Compatibility Mode. See the Help
    section for further details.
