Hi Danleff
Thanks again for all your help and suggestions.
I still have not solved the problem but at least I have tried a lot.
You said there was a jumper on my board to disable auto IRQ I am not sure on this. The manual I have is for the 1996 edition of the board and mine is the 1995 model which has subtle differences and I have been unable to find a copy of the 1995 one.
I am hoping that there may be a way to set the IRQ via the Autoexec.bat file so I am hoping that someone out there may read this and have the answer.
Otherwise I will think I will have to give up on this board.
I do appreciate the time you have taken to help me Many thanks
Trev

Before you give up completely, have you tried pakt's WAKEPUP floppy? (In the ANNOUNCEMENTS category of the forum.)

Trev, you might try using LINLD.COM on a floppy to boot your PC. LINLD.COM is a better TINY.EXE that allows the use of a separate file for parameters (I'm considering using it to improve my WAKEPUP boot disk...).

Lobster has put some info in a Wiki where he describes its use (see the last entry on that page). He's using it to boot Puppy from Windows, but I had no problem using it to boot Puppy from a floppy.

The interesting part is that he has a line in the parameter file to set an interrupt for a troublesome mouse. Perhaps you can use a parameter to set the IRQ this way?

Good luck Smile

BTW, I had problems getting LINLD.COM using Lobster's link. I found it here. Wink
