Or more precisely..;doctype=Downloadable+files;subtype=Mwave#documents

The above is 1 line.. Takes you directly to the Mwave download section of the ibm site..
There are several options for this, so you need to pick the appropriate one ..

Carefull, IBM has some Mwave drivers for the Aptiva based Mwave dolphin (DSP is a 2780) the Aptiva based Mwave Stingray (dsk is a 2780+) the OBI Multimedia modem (the dsp is a 2780), and the Thinkpad (based on the DSP 2780 or 3780)  Also ACER has such a board and a few other brands

Do you know the brand of the card (some drivers will simply not work)

The system should have a model code that will indicate which mwave you have.

So - I'm gonna grab the gold ring here,if that's OK with everybody.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
