Hello ,


Just heard on the grapevine that we attracted the attention of one of 
the driver Developers for our Compro Videomate S350 Satellite card .
 Very good news as I have already begun to give up hope of ever getting 
this card working . Much thanks Manu for getting on the band wagon .
And if there is any testing or printouts that you need please do not 
hesitate to ask .

Thanks Manu again , for getting involved in this as you probably have 
too many commitments as it is .

Best Regards
Milorad
