  1. Yes you’re correct, ISA boards only.

    I built one of these 15 years ago. It’s totaly useless in any computer less than 5 years old because computers don’t have ISA slots anymore.

  2. If you need confirmation that it’s obsolete, the article has a 2000 copyright and uses a BS1 that’s been off the market for years.
