Windows XP has a thing for supporting older drivers.  It won't say it's a certified driver, but most of them will work fine.

Try downloading the drivers for your card for Windows 2000 if the ones for Windows 98 don't work.  You can always use the driver rollback feature on XP if you don't like the results you're getting.

Even if xp does not support your video card, you can install third party drivers such as this:http://www.video-drivers.com/

Hey  m1cky-mc,

Run the "XP Upgrade Advisor" on the XP CD or use the more up-to-date version online here:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/howtobuy/upgrading/advisor.asp   (50megs)

It will report back a list of any harware or software issues (if any) on your system

***note even if you get a driver working on XP it will not be too happy with a 4 meg video card!

XP is a video hog
