    vista is still put together half-assed. go back to xp for about anohter year or two, if you absolutely *have* to upgrade.

    There are not to many drivers being made as of yet for Vista...such as sound drivers. It might be awhile before they are even made. If you must keep Vista then try a dual boot to keep the best of both worlds.

    I personally will stick with XP until I have no other choice.

    Hehehehe.. There we have another great example of the M$ philosophy.. stuff the end user... 200$$ for a pile of c*** that isn't even as complete as 98.

    I have one thought. Have you attempted to find the driver for the card on your xp install, pinching it onto a floppy or something and then putting it somewhere in your vista install and pointing the OS at it?

    Well spoken screw Vista! I do not plan on upgrading until I am forced to and by then I should have all I need on Linux!
