I'd agree. The 3.0 drivers fix many, many bugs, and to my knowledge
none of the 3.0 users have come up with problems that relate to the
driver (usually it's cabling issues). If you want the new driver,
it's FREE from the hotline at 1-800-922-0354.
As for MSDOS usage, I believe it states in the new manuals that come
with the driver that neither the IPC 802 or IPC 900 is recommended for
MSDOS use. Not recommended, and if you really need it I'd recommend
you go to a different vendor if you're going to use it under MSDOS.
The board works great under Unix though (if you have the 3.0 driver).
