All what you have to do is to install the drivers of that video card.  You would have to run Windows setup from DOS, then you would select the display part and change it to select have disk from manufacturer, then make it read the video card drivers.  Once this is installed on your system, you would be up & running.

If you have difficulties in understanding the above instructions let me know, and I will post in more details.

There are no manufacturer disks that came with this card...it is the old Cirrus logic card that does not have any drivers available from the Cirrus site.  

Questions: are there any generic drivers available?
Would it be better to just purchase a new card?
Will a High Res. VGA monitor support 256 colors or do I need a new monitor?

You could use the default SVGA driver from Windows 3.X, this will give a better color depth if you would choose a higher resolution.

You could also buy a new card like ATI with 2 Mg while 1Mg would be enough if you're running Win3.x but think of "If you upgrade" why buy a video card twice.

These cards will come with a manufacturer disk which will install the Windows 3.x drivers for you.

Have thought about moving to Win95?? I should ask if your hardware would help you do that.. Do you want to feedback on your hardware if you want an opinion weither to change to Win95 or not??

Hope this helped
