I can imagine that <g>. Do you also have a decent graphics card and
monitor? 1024x768x65536@85Hz is a nice thing on a 19" :).

Do you have a Win 3.1 DDK?
When you're finished with the USB drivers <g>: Could you put together a
VESA display driver (for cards with a VESA 2.0 or higher BIOS) that
allow running higher resolution and color depths even on cards that
don't have any Win 3.1x drivers? The world needs one, but unfortunately
nobody has tried writing one yet :(...

At www.creative.com, perhaps? ;) For the CD-ROM: Where is it connected?
If it's connected to the sound card, it's most likely a 1x or 2x drive
and needs a special driver. If it's connected to the mainboard's IDE
controller, it's a standard ATAPI drive and a standard ATAPI driver
should do (and if not, you can still run diagnostic software to find out
what make and model it is).
