Hello,
I am more or less doing a project of installing Windows ME on a Thinkpad R60. The process so far has been nearly perfect. Aside from a motherboard resource conflict, which cannot be fixed, I just need a Windows 9x driver for Soundmax Audio (945GM chipset) and get the wireless card to work.

A while ago, I did this project on a Dell Latitude D600 and problemchyld tweaked the broadcom wireless driver to work on a Windows 9x machine. He did this and his C600 worked fine with it.

If possible, is anyone here capable of modifying this very driver to work on Windows 9x? The driver installs but gives an error just like the driver problemchyld had modified.

I believe this driver is likely to work if modified due to its age. It was compiled around the near-end of Windows 98/ME support. I just happened to notice that drivers meant for successor systems occasionally work on their predecessors, if the predecessor's lifespan did not quite end.

Boy, it's a tough one. I certainly can't do this but maybe you are lucky and someone around here can. :???:

Someone edited my first post to include another driver...unfortunately, I can confirm it does not work.
