Installed my Voodoo 5 5500 and Windows xp immediately went out and found drivers for it. Was able to use the card just fine but I wanted to try the Amigamerlin drivers so I tried to install them instead of the Microsoft drivers. Now I can't get the card to work at all. The pc appears to boot and it gives me the initial boot screen and says the voodoo 5 is installed but all it shows me after that is a blue screen. It sounds like everything is loading but nothing shows up on the monitor. I tried going back to the original Microsoft drivers but the same thing happens.

What have I done wrong?

Asus P4PE
Intel 2.4B
ATI 9700 AIW (AGP)
Voodoo 5 5500 (PCI)
Windows XP (with service pack)
Direct x 9

Ok, I'm replying to myself (can I go blind doing that?) My problem may be that I may have neglected to change my color to 16 bit and therefore the drivers won't work. Can anyone tell my how I can force my pc to boot in 16 bit? I have tried to do it from the control panel when I boot off my AGP card but it won't save the changes and reverts back to 32 bit.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
