I'll add the information to this site. I believe it may help some of you to read a few comments about what drivers we lack. I currently run three operating systems on my machine - Windows 98 SE, Windows NT 4.0 (primary domain controller), and Windows XP Home. Now that you know your hardware and have your partitions set up, I will list the driver locations. navigate here
I had a diskette already with these drivers as I own several similar cards in my other computers. Now, Microsoft recommends installing 98, then NT, then XP. This will save you hours if you have to redo this later due to a disk crash or a virus. You will end up with a partition of about 4 GB.
Other than that, though, we appear to have found all other basic working drivers. how about that...You are the person responsibe for the happines of many people...great job! Send me an email whenever you find a driver which works.
You may go here to download the proper driver from the chipset manufacturer. I store them on my LAN setup on another computer's hard drive. Running it gives you more information about what drivers you need. Oftentimes, the label on them will tell you exactly the manufacturer and name of the particular hardware in your system.
I will inform you of any other dead links I find. If not, just reformat the hard drive and install Windows 98 followed by NT. Before you remove Windows XP Home go through its driver list and write down the identities of each driver. Getting this machine to run something other than XP is certainly a challenge.
I would not have even tried this without it. Both 98 and NT worked fine as well as XP. the enginners from COMPAQ tell me about your place!... You say on your page that you would like to know about dead links.
the 505 ver is no longer on realteks website. my site I bought mine to run Windows 98 and NT as a dual boot system. I recommend, finally, making drive images of your various partitions and saving them elsewhere as backups. Thus, I had unformatted regions before and after it.

Your webpage is very helpful. This saves you from having to reinstall them if you crash, etc. It may run in other operating systems but I did not try it in others.
Here, NT gave no problem booting up. My PC have a little diference about the network controller, mine have the Realtek RT8139/A/B/C/D/8130, and you can find the driver right here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloads1-3.aspx?keyword=rt8139 Gracias Compadre...vaya con Dios! ******************************* Arden sends just fyi - thanks for the very informative website. the curios thing about this, its how I found your webpage...

Then, choose "Twister" drivers. As a benefit to the user community and with no thanks to Compaq, I decided to list below the links you may use to find these drivers. Compaq provides us with a nonstandard OEM version of Windows XP. Compaq may use several suppliers so what I have in my system may differ from what you have.

If you want to keep XP, resize its partition as it exists on your notebook with Partition Magic. I will let you know how it goes.
Could be an all nighter. S3 Graphics has removed this driver from their page and I receive emails that the remaining drivers do not work with Windows 98. I am trying to get Linux (Mandrake 8.1) working but I haven't managed to get it to boot yet. With a little ingenuity, I have succeeded in using it despite this limitation.
However, we lack the driver for Windows NT modem. You should update them from time to time as perhaps once a month.
