Scenario:
Asus Motherboard MEB-VM with Celeron 433
and 256 MBytes of ram, OS is Win98.
This motherboard has an onboard VGA port,
and I want to install a riser card to
increase overall performance in graphics.

Problem:
I tried to install a Riva TNT2 Model 64
graphics accelerator card in the open
AGP slot. I went into Phoenix Bios 4.0
and set the VGA to AGP setting - no good.
I tried to install the software and drivers
for the card - no good, not detected.
I tried to disable the onboard VGA by
the VGA_EN jumper on motherboard, and then
rebooted hoping drivers would load - no good.

Any combinations of, or changing the order of
the processes involved - no good.
I have tried to contact ASUS support, I am
waiting to hear back from them.

Is their an answer to be had here?
