Please let me know if you have any information on where or how to locate these drivers.

I have the following disks that I could image.

System Configuration Ver 2.02 (Compaq EISA Configuration Utility)
Non-Compaq Option Configuration Files Ver 2.02
Diagnostics Ver 8.04
MS OS/2 Support Ver 7.12
MS-DOS Support-1 Ver 7.12
MS-DOS Support-2 Ver 7.12 (DOS and Netware support)
Microsoft Windows Support Ver 7.12
Audio Driver Support for Win 3.1 Ver 3.04 (2 disks)
Display Driver Support for Windows Ver 1.21 (2 disks)
MS-DOS System Ver 5.00 (Start-up disk?)

I'll have to check them first as I have not used them in a while and I can't remember if they are all in English or not as I got them with a German market Compaq.

I wasn't all that aware that the portable 386 needed any drivers at all, even for Windows.

That would be great.

Well. I connected my Portable 486 to a monitor and installed Dragon's Lair on it. It was obvious it needed a vga driver when I fired it up to play.
