>I can't seem to configure the display…
Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Device Manager, Display Adapters… Be sure only one is installed. Select the adapter, Properties, Driver, Update Driver, select Specify a location… and point Windows to the CD or floppy with the driver.
>How can I force Windows to find an internal Modem?
I would go into the computer CMOS Setup and disable the serial ports. Go to the Device Manger and delete the serial port drivers and MODEMs with exclamation marks. Reboot and see if Windows detects the MODEM. If not, repeat the foregoing in the device manager and then use Add New Hardware to install the MODEM manually. Move the MODEM to another PCI slot if it still doesn’t work and repeat. The MODEM could be bad. Larry
