OS/2 Drivers:
Available
Drivers from:
OS/2 ftp: 929_v2.zip or opti928.zip
Comments:
This board uses the OPTi 928 and a Crystal Semiconductor chipsets. The most detailed information I have on this board indicates that it works mostly with either driver set, but some feature (VTD or CD Audio) fail to work with one driver or the other.

~$50
OS/2 Drivers:
Available
Drivers from:
OS/2 box, OS/2 ftp, Crystal Semiconductor's web site
Comments:
This is one of several boards based on the Crystal Semiconductor 4236 chipset. As such, it should work well under OS/2, including having full-duplex support and OS/2 sound when a Windows program is running when used with the latest drivers (but see the section on Crystal Semiconductor chipsets for details).

AW35

Wavetable (?)
Chipset:
Crystal Semiconductor
CD-ROM:

OS/2 Drivers:
Available
Drivers from:
OS/2 box, OS/2 ftp, Crystal Semiconductor's web site
Comments:
This is Acer's latest sound board. Like the AW32, it's based on one of the popular Crystal Semiconductor chipsets. I've not seen much about it under OS/2, however.
