I've had good luck with booting DOS (such as MS-DOS version 5.0) from a
floppy, then running the provided DOS util that came with the card.  Do
this and you may be able to avoid an MS-Windows install.

BTW, I hate it when a vendor provides you a DOS-only card config util.
Why don't they write it in Java so we can use it with our Macs and
SPARC machines too?  ;-)
