I tried some of the "underground" drivers for the voodoo 4 4500 and they smoked! Think they were omega drivers if memory serves me.

He means good.

From my experience, the Voodoo5 works great in 98se but terrible in XP. My brother used to run a V5 in his box which had XP on it. I downloaded and tried... I think it was 9 different driver sets, all the ones I could find, including the Underground ones. Some games would work but many would not, especially the newer titles using Opengl (Jedi Outcast, etc.). It was such a nightmare I finally sold the card.

Smokes as in kicked arse, beat the competition still sitting at the starting line, etc ;)

Or "smokes" for the pothead, which, for them, is still good... :p
