4 out of 5 eggs Did not work with Windows 98SE 03/22/2013

This review is from: EVGA 6 GeForce 6200 DirectX 9 512-P1-N402-LR 512MB 64-Bit DDR2 PCI 2.1 Video Card

Pros: Nice card at a great price.
512Mb memory, DVI output.
It works with Windows XP just fine.
I removed one 'egg' because of the Windows 98 problem.

Cons: Even though Nvidia has drivers for the 6200 and Windows 98.
I was not able to get this card to work with Windows 98SE.
After installing the driver and rebooting the computer.
I get - Windows protection error - restart your computer.
Tried many different versions of the drivers and BIOS settings.
Gave up and got a 128Mb 5200 series card.
And it works just fine

Other Thoughts: Due to the old software I need to use I have to use Windows 98 and DOS mode.
I use 98SE because of the ease of going to and from DOS mode.
The other option would be dual boot with XP and DOS 6.
But I did not want to create a custom batch file to choose which DOS app to run.
Along with the pure DOS driver install hassles for GPIB and APIB I/O cards.
