Ok great. The only problem I have now is that I don't have
programming information for the board. It is an
AST Rampage Plus 286 card.

I have no idea how these cards work. What ports are used?
IRQ's, DMA? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I'm itching to do so now! I need programming info. I have the
MSDOS driver for the card, and could possibly reverse engineer
it, but I don't know how .SYS files load under DOS. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for your help.
