Generic drivers are included in Windows. What you need are the proper Win98 drivers for your video card (or onboard video). If you list the make/model of your video, someone will be able to find them for you.

Maybe you should explain exactly what you have & exactly what you're trying to do. What LiveCD are you talking about?

Live CD? Sounds like Linux...

If you are using a regular W98 CD you should have no problem at all getting 640x480.

Generic high res drivers are a myth - for high resolution you need the specific driver for that particular graphics card, otherwise it's standard vga (much like Win31) 640x480 4 bit (16 colour)

"WfW 3.11 driver did not work"

Of course not, drivers tend to be OS specific

Seems like you are attempting some 'special project', but have ground to a halt due to a flawed understanding of the principles involved

"I want SVGA 640x480 16Bpp"

Fine... then identify your display and install the appropriate driver

... same poster, or a little identity crisis (and are you bragging or complaining)?

Sure, some have had limited success with that SVGA.DRV file - while that's an impressive resolution, the colour depth is hardly enviable
