If you should be one of the few people who are still using DOS, the FastTrak66 will be to your liking. You don't need any driver to take advantage of FastTrak's performance or security under DOS. However, you can only access the first 8 GB of an array under DOS.
The driver installation under Windows 98 is very simple. Place the driver disk into the floppy drive and that's it. Additionally Promise supplies two utility programs on their website. No. 1 is the 'Fast Check Monitor Utility', which looks nice and shiny, but it comes without any documentation.
This one simply shows you the arrays that you've got.
