My ME disk is at home and it may be tomorrow before I can send you the 
files.  In the mean time I spotted the files at a link George 
gave.  [http://www.usb-drivers.com/drivers/77/77012.htm].

Also, they may be on your ME disk inside a file called base2.cab --- have 
you looked there?

I'll FTP to ftp.rawbw.com/pub/bnilsen/incoming (I'm emailing this to myself 
for reference when I get home)
