I have an Intense3D Wildcat 4000 made by 3DLabs, on a Dell Workstation.

It seems the drivers only go up to Win2k. I'm wondering if I should just use the latest Win2k drivers for XP, or if there is a better substitute. The card is about 3 years old, I think.

Maybe it's been updated by a different card and can still use the same drivers - I'm not sure.

the latest wildcat 4000 drivers from 3dlabs are here:

generally speaking, winXP and win2k use very similar kernels, and the drivers are often interchangeable. i've not tried myself, but going on the other hardware i've used in the past it should work without hassles.

typically the only hardware i've had troubles with win2k vs winxp drivers has been webcams and scanners (using TWAIN technology). sounds, video and similar drivers usually work fine.
