Dear James

I don't know if this will be helpful - my laptop is an Advent 5471. I recently wanted to get rid of Windows ME and install Windows 98se. The helpline number supplied by Dixon's (0870-901-3000) were able to tell me pretty much what hardware was installed in my particular laptop. For my machine : ATI Rage LT Pro AGP graphics, ESS Maestro 2E PCI audio (soundblaster 16bit compatible), Zoltrix FMSFT6i modem/Rockwell(now Connexant) K56 modem drivers. Of course yours may be different, but a bit of rooting around - and internet searching - should turn up what you need - my installation went smoothly and the system is running fine now. is an excellent place to look for drivers.

Best of luck
