Have rebooted probably about 40 times since then, and it is still working like a charm.

I am sorry, it is just that I assumed since the device was used on Windows 98, and here we are with Windows 7, over 10 years difference, that you would not be able to find a driver for it, I mean if lots of people are having issues with XP to Windows 7 driver-wise, I kind of find it unbelievable you were able to do so. Anyways, great job, you are extremely lucky to have found a working driver...

It's not most of the time. Out of over 180 AMD motherboards available for purchase on, more than 80 of them do not have onboard video. Of the 360 plus intel boards, over 300 do not have onboard video.
