Is there anything I could do to help track them down? If you told me exactly what was needed I might be able to locate them.
Or should I just keep checking this thread to see if you've been successful?

Third driver down is the Sound driver. Let me know if it worked.

The sound card is now working well, the external soundblaster connect that I installed is now stable (at least while I was pottering around with the sound software this afternoon). All of the programmes I need for the music editing appear to be fully functional. This is all very good news indeed......but, during installation of the sound card drivers I was prompted to install drivers for a joy-stick, which I was unable to do. The prompt asked me to insert the windows 98 disc, but the drivers wouldn't install.
So....in the device manager now, there are two yellow question marks next to 'joy-stick', and 'PCI Communication Device'.
I don't know how significant this is. I don't know what a PCI communication device is, and with regard the joy-stick, I don't envisage playing games on this machine, and if I did surely I could use a joy-stick that came with drivers.
What do you think? Should I still be concerned by these entries in the device manager?

It is the second to the last driver in the list.
The other I will have to look for still.

Should I assume it's safe?

I installed the modem drivers, and had another go at the joystick device - but this time through device manager. It located drivers from the win98 disc this time round, and installed them.
There is now just a yellow question mark next to 'other devices' in the device manager list.
I'm struggling to think what that might be. Any ideas?

Does this system have a network card in it?
