... so after half a decade of using only Linux for my non-work-related IT, I was trying to get this gameport-steering wheel running under Vista. Turns out that MS removed the gameport support altogether and the creative driver hack doesn't work. Looks like the Vista drivers of my sound card are making sure this remains a futile attempt.

So now what - usb adapter? :-/

I really wonder what MS gained from removing this hardware support. Its beyond me.
