SB MCV (CT5320)



>Is the MCA Creative Soundblaster (Pro) a useble soundcard,  MIDI W95/98 e.g.?

From Peter
Yes - from the principle. 
   However the card technically bases on the old 8-bit ISA (!!) card, roughly conversed to MCA and originally designed for Stage I and II MCA (80286 and low-end 80386 machines). They tend to cause bus timeout errors on faster machines ... and since you mentioned Win98 (which won't work properly on most PS/2) these will be your prefered machines I guess.
   Best recommendation: do yourself a favour, forget the SB MCV and buy a ChipChat or SoundPiper card. They have been designed and tested to work with the better PS/2.
