    They are not available.....yet......There is a group of GL fans working on
    XP drivers for it now.I hear they are just working the bugs out of it.There
    is a gadgetlabs newsgroup,they could tell you more.Another thing you can do
    is set up a dual boot system that you are running XP and when you want to
    record boot up win 89se,or NT 4.0.It may even work with windows 2000 (I'm
    not 100% sure on this)

    Good luck

    The beta drivers are working pretty well for some of us at this point.
    Limited ASIO support and no MIDI at this time, and various bugs that may
    or may not be deal breakers for a given user.

    The group is at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GadgetLabs/?yguid=42786678

    XP handles dual-boot very gracefully, and that's what I'm doing. 98SE is
    the preferred OS by far, among those on the GL users group.Win2000 works
    for some, but there are many reported problems.

    I had to run a dual-boot setup with WinXP and Win98SE. The 8*24 just won't
    work on XP. I heard a rumor that some users are trying to develop XP
    drivers.
    What's the "96" in your message? IIRC, the GL 8*24 would do 24bit/48KHz
    max.

    That would be great if they did,while they're at it, let 'em put in GSIF
    drivers too..
    Then I really would have another sound card, instead of a door stop......lol
