Hey. I was weened on dos and can't seem to quell that giddy feeling it imparts to me. Yet one area of great dismay for me is the fact that I currently only have access to my Dell Inspiron 8000 notebook which comes with the ESS maestro sound card which has no DOS drivers and is not Sound Blaster compatible. Through much toil and trouble I have finally setup a dual boot environment with xp & dos. I have loaded my favorite game "Privateer!!" the original only to find out I have no sound. I have been hunting around for ways to get sound and have been told to buy a pcmcia card that is sb compatible and plug in external speakers/headphones. I also heard rumors about some emulator that would allow me to use my sound card. If you have any input please help a poor old DOS gamer out.
