Can anyone tell me where I can locate drivers for a Shuttle Spacewalker HOT-247 sound card that will run on Windows 2000?  I have tried every driver site that I know and their tech support will not answer me to tell me if they are even available at this time.  I appriciate any assistance.

Did you try the NT 4 driver at ftp://ftp.spacewalker.com/Drivers/247ennt.zip?  Probably won't work, but...
INF file indicates that you have a OPTi 82c93x chipset.  http://www.windrivers.com/identity/sound/company/opti.htm only shows NT 4.0 as well.  It seems OPTi sold off its audio division in 1997 to Ectiva, meaning that the likelyhood of drivers being made for your sound chipset is highly unlikely.  In fact, this is what they say on their website:

OPTi sold its audio chipset business in 1997 and we do not have drivers for Windows 98, Windows 2000, or Linux. Please contact your sound card manufacturer for these drivers.

Basically, if you want sound under Windows 2000, time to get a new sound card (or bug Shuttle for the drivers)!

I finally got a response back from Shuttle and it doesn't look like they will be releasing them anytime soon.  Thanks anyway.
