1) you expected Windows 98 to support NTFS partitions? (hence why only some drives were listed in Windows 98)

2) you expected it to run well without motherboard drivers? (as pointed out, motherboard manufacturers don't develop drivers for legacy operating systems.)

3) A:\ drive is not always reserved for floppy drives, it is used for both floppy and CD but floppy gets priority if a floppy drive is present.

How silly can you get? :D

2.you should n't need a chipset driver but you can install it if u have it

You need it for graphics acceleration and proper/fast hard drive performance amongst other things.
