PCI Bridge Drivers

I have a supermicro LX chipset MB (P6DLS).
Under device manager in Windows95/osr2 with USB support; it shows "Other" devices with "PCI Bridge" with the round, yellow circle and exclamation mark through it. It informs me that no drivers are loaded for this. Deleting it doesn't get rid of it. What is the cure for this? Where would I get the drivers for this "device"?

The text says to use this on asus MB's only. Is it safe to use with a supermicro MB?

Hmm, you've got a point there. Although it worked fine with my Shuttle MB. You might wanna try this one instead --> ftp://acma.com/systems/PCI_B.EXE

Well, I did take the chance and use the Asus patch on my supermicro MB. After getting around the warning  to use on Asus MB only I went ahead and "patched". Hell, on reboot it wanted to install every driver I ever had!  :-)
But it seems to work. Nothing under other devices. And a bunch of other stuff in system devices including a couple that mention my LX chipset. They weren't there before. Everything seems to be OK and running smoothly (as smoothly as Win95 can run).
I take it the PCI_B.EXE does the same sort of thing? It would be interesting to know which one does the better patch. ie is it necessary to reload all the drivers with the PCI_B patch?
Thanks for your help. Now, on to other things. I have a BeOS to load........
:-)

Nah, I wouldn't waste my "valuable" time with that PCI_B patch if the other worked out fine. I think the primary demand was that you had an LX Chipset MB.
