I have a Dell 4300 running Windows Xp. I have a ATi Rage 128 Pro.
When I run VBETEST in a DOS promt I get these results:
OEM string: ATI RAGE128
Version: VBE 2.0 with -64 Kb memory

. Multi Buffering: No . Virtual Scrolling: No
. 8 bit wide DAC support: Yes . NonVGA Controller: No
. Linear framebuffer: No

I then rebooted using a MS dos boot disk and got this:

OEM string: ATI RAGE128
Version: VBE 2.0 with 16384kb memory

. Multi Buffering: Yes . Virtual Scrolling: Yes
. 8 bit wide DAC support: Yes . NonVGA Controller: No
. Linear framebuffer: 3968 MB

But can not get the game to load using the boot disk.
Any ideas. I have loaded the latest drivers and Bios.
Meh

The Ati rage card is probably casing the problem. This is because it can`t display a certain Res. (640x480?)
