Hi everyone,
I finally solved my three minutes boot problem with the SB Live! X-Gamer 5.1 and Win98SE posted into the Sound Card and Win98 sections about a week ago....
I installed Win2K.....eheheh!!!
Now here is the new problem: I own an HP PhotoSmart P1100 and the win2k drivers are not in the original drivers cd that came in the box, so I went online but I cannot get the newly downloaded drivers installed... now, I've followed all the stupid HP steps to install the printer, I changed my parallel port bios settings to plain ECP like the drivers setup error message reccomends, I am using a Belkin Gold parallel cable high conductivity TRI-directional (just exaggerating ;0)with all the possible features that a cable could ever have etc etc etc but nothing...
I believe that HP rules in the printer field, their printers are in my opinion the best ever, but their driver support really sux...
any help would be appreciated...

Hp makes good printers. But their drivers seriously suck!! My dad has the s20 negative scanner he bought last year and they just came out with win2k drivers for it.
