Well guys, I've got a Diamond Stealth 64 PCI w/ 2M DRAM. While running the
pre-release beta of Win 95 I discovered that the driver for video cards that
use the S3 chip uses memory area that "belongs" to COM4. This created
problems with my mouse and modem until I changed ports for both. There may
be a tie-in, or then again maybe not.
