I use it to connect to external devices (mostly for flashing eproms) via
com and paralell port but having problem when i use parallel port (i got
error opening port). I tried win xp prof , xpsp1,sp2 , bios upgrade
(curently A15 ver) etc but all the same . I don't have problem when
using same prog with other PC (Compaq armada, Dell optiplex desktop).

Also have anyone succesfully intalled win98SE on this system . I only
succeded when installed a ghost from other PC but can'find apropriate
drivers for it.
