Dual Fifo Problems

When I do a clean install of Windows 95, it doesn't configure the hard drive controllers as dual fifo.  I'm wondering how to correct this problem myself.  O.K.  Let's see.  I have an Asus TXP4 motherboard with an Intel 233/MMX processor.  And yes, I have two hard drives connected to it.  The two hard drives are on IDE 1 and my CD-ROM drive is on IDE 2.  Shouldn't Windows 95 set the darn things up for me automatically?

Scully. This is very simple: just download IDE busmaster drivers
and install them. ftp://ftp.asus.com/pub/Drivers/bmide-95.exe

Just make one thing: before istallation, pull out SoundBlaster
card from case, then install BM drivers, make sure you don't have
conflicts, then insert SB card back.

O.K.  By some miracle busuka I came to the same conclusion and have already downloaded that file to my system.  I'll let you know how it goes.  By the way, do you have any idea if I'll have the same problem with Windows 98?

Probably won't have that problem with Windows 98 because it comes with over 350 mb of drivers on the install CD.

I'll tell you what, Windows 98 has totally blown my mind.  I went ahead and installed it and it configured every piece of hardware I have with NO errors!  I was having a heart attack.  All of the updates for my motherboard were apparently included in Windows 98, so my computer is up and running, very well I might add.  Thank you guys for all your help.  I'll definitely be back here a lot!!!
