    Post MPX play and sound not working

    OK, I'm trying to convert my carputer to MPX play. So far it's being fairly gay.
    A: No LCD
    B: No sound
    C: I don't know what I'm doing

    I have no idea how I use Gmenu and MPX play together. But to get the sound card working, I went to system properties in windows and went to the properties for the sound card. I found the driver and input output range and interrupt request and I know I need these in order for it to work in DOS. Also, if I'm running the DOS from windows where i just put bootgui=0 , then is it loading windows drivers for the sound card? Ah, I'm so confused. I got all the drivers for my motherboard (sound card is built in) here mine is the EX/LX pentium II model. It has different setups for DOS, win 9x and win 3.1. Should I use the DOS or windows 9x for the driver installation?

    Next problem. The LCD won't work. I put in the right address for the parallel port in the config file and still nothin.

    Finally. How do I get it to start at my MP3 directory? And from there, how to select playlists?

    Aaah! All this frustration is coming back to me! Thank you very much for your help!

    The Windows drivers don't get loaded unless you boot into Windows. The bootgui=0 trick tells your machine to boot straight into DOS (and not to go into Windows).

    Since Windows isn't running, the Windows 9x device drivers never get loaded.

    Use the DOS drivers that came with your motherboard. Run the installer program from DOS.
