I was having trouble with sound card, but after having cleared that up something else went wrong. When booting up it goes through all the checks, it's happy with sound card, as far as i can tell, but when it goes to start Windows (98SE) it goes back to a DOS screen looks like...
1 NORMAL
2 LOGGED (BOOTLOG TXT)
3 SAFE MODE
4 STEP BY STEP CONFIRMATION
5 COMMAND PORMPT
6 SAFE MODE COMMAND PROMPT
I have only tried NORMAL. then i get a screen that says " RAM PARITY ERROR-CHECKING FOR SEGMENT...
OFFENDING SEGMENT:
0000
PRESS F1 TO DISABLE NMI, F2 TO REBOOT
At this point, there is no responce.

Yes , i replaced Crystal CS4281 with a different one same model i got with a driver disk.
I don't know if going through the install & driver install did it or not because did not work until i noticed both D drive (CD ROM), and E Drive(CD RW) were both plugged into the card. I unplugged the D Drive from the card and it worked.
